Whether your goals are personal goals or career goals, it is essential that you are a self-starter. Taking the initiative in all aspects of your life will attract opportunities to you. Part of being a self-starter is to be willing to operate outside of your comfort zone. If you truly desire to reach a new level of success then something new must be done.
Self-starters recognize that success takes courage, planning and effort to achieve. They understand that they don’t know everything and are always looking for ways to learn. They are willing to make mistakes and use them as a means of self-development. They appreciate the fact that life is not about winning or losing, but rather the value and contribution you can use your life to make.
If you can adopt and develop the traits of a self-starter you will begin to enjoy working towards your goals, and will take the lead in your success.
