Sometimes the greatest enemy to initiative is a rut we've created for ourselves. Ruts can prevent us from changing course, even when we know change is vital to our success. Get stuck in a rut long enough, and you'll begin to lose all incentive to initiate positive change. As the saying goes, a grave is nothing more than a rut with both ends filled in.
So how do you get yourself out of a rut? Take these steps:
1. Accept responsibility for your own life.
2. Know where you want to be.
3. Divide your dream into manageable parts.
4. Get going.
Don't hope for inspiration. Create your own incentive to change. Don't wait - create the initiative you need for your success.
