Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.William Hutchinson Murray

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.Andy Warhol
Most people lose initiative since they fear failures. Hence when others try to take initiative, they predict failure. It is only your courage that can propel you to take initiative in life and do great work for the self and the humanity.
