What is initiative? It is a creative faculty within you, a spark of the Infinite Creator. It may give you the power to create something
no one else has ever created. It urges you to see things in new ways. The accomplishments of a person of initiative may be as
spectacular as a shooting star. Apparently creating something from nothing, he demonstrates that the seemingly impossible
may become possible by one’s employment of the great inventive power of Spirit.

Initiative enables you to stand on your own feet, free and independent. It is one of the attributes of success.
