Initiation always involves some degree of risk. You’re putting yourself out there and there is a chance you could fail.
Being successful requires being proactive and not waiting for life to come to you. It means you’re on offense, not defense. You’re active, not passive.
Conversely, doing only what you’re told entails no risk and carries no responsibility. It’s playing safe.
Are you an initiator? You absolutely can be.
But if not, one thing is for certain: Life isn’t going to wait for you.
