The Power Of Personal Initiative

The Power Of Personal Initiative

Life can be simple, we can achieve anything we want, but for that, we can’t just follow the same old routine, doubt, and wait for the dreams to come true. To achieve them, we have to take the initiative in life and take proactive steps towards them.

By all means, we do things without being told, we find out what we need to know, we keep going when things get tough, and we spot and take advantage of opportunities that others pass by. We act, instead of reacting.

And it also make us, literally separating ourselves from the competition by simply doing what everyone else is scared to do.

Beneficial Of Initiative: Busting Fear

Beneficial Of Initiative: Busting Fear

We feel vulnerable when we take a step into the unknown. The greatest role of fear is to alert us to potential danger. The greatest trap is that we allow fear to prevent us from moving forward.

Most fears are irrational and crop up when we’re trying something new and our ego is threatened by change. Take note of any real danger, acknowledge the irrational fear that is trying to protect us, thank it, park it and move on.

Start By Doing Little Things

Start By Doing Little Things

Personal initiative is more than a fundamental requirement to achieving our goals, it’s also about doing the little things that make our life and the lives of others, both at work and at home, more enjoyable.

It’s doing the simple things like picking up our dirty clothes, cleaning the dirty windows or emptying the overflowing trash can.

In a sense, our personal initiative is noticing and being aware of the things that need to be done without being asked. Though it may be challenging and uncomfortable, but, why not try and be one step ahead?

Initiative: Learn More About Ourselves

Initiative: Learn More About Ourselves

  • Self-Awareness

Taking initiative is taking a risk. But it’s the only way we’re going to learn about ourselves and our personal power. Once we start discovering our capabilities, we’ll want to keep going.

  • Creativity

Initiative creates opportunities and allows us to fuel our passion. Although we share the Road with others, no one else walks our steps. It’s up to us to recognize our gifts and share them with others.

Learn From Mistakes

Learn From Mistakes

If we’re not making mistakes, we’re not stretching and growing. One of the reasons it’s wise for new riders to purchase used the first time is that they’re going to damage it or they’re going to choose something they’re not happy with. While we want to be making informed choices and not risking safety, we gather the best information available to make our decision.

"Mistakes are one of the greatest teaching tools."

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug
