To have initiative is to possess the power of original conception, the power to create something that no one else has ever created. It means to try and do things in new ways. Everyone is born with this God given power, but few use it or try to develop it. The person with initiative is like a shooting star. He or she creates something from nothing and makes the impossible possible by the great inventive power of spirit. You have superior powers and precious talents lying dormant within your being. You may possess burning fires of ambition as yet unrealized. Do not sink into the rut of mediocrity. Rise above the crowd. Paramahansa Yogananda
