“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.”Amelia Earhart
The only thing that separates those who are successful and those aren’t yet is the willingness to act on their ideas. (Well, that and a lot of good luck.)
Initiative is —
- Listening to your gut.
- Figuring out how even when you are unsure where to start.
- Pursuing your dream, instead of being idle
- Not only having ambition but putting it into practice.
Initiative is putting your ambition into practice.
It’s tasing your hand in class or speaking up when the opportunity strikes.
Initiative is seeking opportunities versus waiting for an opportunity to magically come to us. If you don’t ask- if you don’t try- if you don’t act- if you don’t speak out- then who will?
Everyone will tell you how you should live your life. But it’s up to each of us to choose who we want to be and what we want to do.
If there’s an idea you feel driven to try — Go for it.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
