The Power of Personal Initiative

The Power of Personal Initiative

Personal initiative is defined as: The willingness to take self-initiated action in the pursuit of your goals.

Personal initiative is within all of us, it is what gave us the ability to walk and talk.

Personal initiative will enable success

You cannot achieve success unless you have you set yourself goals. Have you set your goals?

But now, everything you wish to achieve in your personal or business life, needs specific things to be undertaken before you can succeed.

Only if you take action will you achieve your goals.

Procrastination in the enemy of personal initiative

You can say always say: "I'll do it tomorrow." And many people do! How many people do you know who "put things off"?

They say "I'm not in the mood right now. I'll do it later." Consequently, they don't do what is necessary to create the results they say they want.

How many people do you know, who are waiting for their circumstances to change before they will act?

George Bernard Shaw said:

"People are always blaming their circumstances. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, --- make them."

Life doesn't just happen

It is your inner power, your personal initiative, that will kick start you to take the necessary actions to begin the process of achievement.

Personal initiative starts with one small step towards your bigger goal.

Leonardo da Vinci wrote:

"It has long since come to my attention that, people of accomplishment rarely sit back and let things happen to them.

Instead, they go out and happened to things".

Therefore, let us all go out and "happen to things".
