Today I want to talk with you about a simple tool that will make you more money. It demonstrates your trustworthiness at work, is required for you to start your own business and increases your productivity and confidence.
It’s called initiative! Initiative is defined as “the initiation of action, independent of outside influence or control.” In other words, when something needs to be done, you do it without being told.
When you have no initiative, you train others to babysit and micro-manage you because you’re just not dependable. When you DO have it, you put your career or business under YOUR CONTROL.
Afraid to step up and take control?
Past failures are not just a thing of the past; they could be holding you back from your future. If you’ve been struggling to take new risks or accept challenges, start that business you’ve always wanted or just want to increase your income, you need to overcome your old mindset. Realize your full potential and make your dreams happen.
You see, 98% of the population believes if it isn’t in their official “Job Description,” it isn’t their problem. Because of this mindset, you have a tendency to fall behind in your profession simply because you aren’t picking up new skill sets.
When you fall behind, you cause pressure in your job and eventually this pressure builds to a point where your confidence inevitably escapes!
Today, let’s rate your level of initiative based on your real-world results. If you are coming up short in any area, you might be fighting:
- Lack of motivation
- Lack of determination
- Fear of failure
So how do you fight these?
- Take responsibility for your job, business or home
- Become a problem-solver. Seek different solutions!
- Learn new skills
If you work for yourself, you can’t afford not to listen to this message! A lack of initiative not only puts less money in your pocket due to lack of confidence and productivity, it also costs you money if you have to hire outside sources to pick up your own slack.
Your future, your job and your income are 100% in your control if you master this tip. Listen, it’s time to step up! Dump the “not my job” mindset and start working on cultivating those valuable skills.
