Initiative – Webster defines this word as the power or opportunity to do something before others do: the energy and desire that is needed to do something: a plan or program that is intended to solve a problem

This word has been on my mind lately and I have really been wondering if I truly take initiative every single day. I found these quotes on taking initiative and they have motivated me to go above and beyond. I hope you will find encouragement in them too!

“Genius is initiative on fire.” Holbrook Jackson

“Initiative is doing the right things without being told.” Elbert Hubbard

“The key is taking responsibility and initiative, deciding what your life is about and prioritizing your life around the most important things.” Stephen Covey

“Success comes from taking the initiative and following up… persisting… eloquently expressing the depth of your love. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?”  Tony Robbins

“Employers and business leaders need people who can think for themselves – who can take initiative and be the solution to problems” Stephen Covey

“Without initiative, leaders are simply workers in leadership positions.” Bo Bennett

Have a wonderful day!
