What Is Initiative?

Kamsi Oguguo, Sydney Ellis, Editor

Initiative is the capability to do something before others. Taking initiative in something means that one can take responsibility for a certain cause. Initiative is a skill that can promote success in many ways. Showing initiative means that you have developed leadership skills and have fulfilled the entitlement to be an influence to others. An example of taking initiative is, cleaning trash from our environments without the need of an adult pleading with you to do so. Anything that helps our environment is an important aspect of creating the perfect future for ourselves. The idea of taking initiative can amplify the influence enacted on your peers to help the capability and population of leadership to increase.
