Taking the Initiative

I’m going to keep this one short.  Initiative is in theory quite a simple concept.  You see people around you who are unhappy and are doing the same thing over and over again but won’t do anything about it to change it.

The key to this is change.  If something is making you unhappy, isn’t giving you what you want in life or isn’t what you want to do…then change it.  One of my favourite quotes is one from Einstein which is:

‘Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’ (Note: Not applicable to roulette)

If any of the above things describe what current state you are in, then the key is change.  Do something different, do something else or do something you want to do.  It is amazing what can happen when you stop looking at what you are doing but look at what you could be doing.

If things aren’t going your way, then change the rules by which your playing the game…or better still change the game, make it in your favour and watch what happens.

Take the risk…See here for more on risk taking.
