“Man who stand on hill with mouth open will wait long time for roast duck to drop in.”
– Confucius, Chinese philosopher

As part of my Personal Excellence Training program, I use various assessments to determine the likelihood of success for each person.
One of the traits associated with success is initiative. People who are motivated self-starters take it upon themselves to proactively move in the direction of their goals – such as completing a new project, finding a new customer, or securing a raise or promotion.
Where in your professional or personal life would a booster shot of initiative make the biggest difference for you today?
Secure the support of friends, family, colleagues, or a coach to stretch and grow this ability in yourself and you will have many more roast duck dinners in the years to come.
