Can I lead the Army of One?
Do I have what it takes to lead myself to do what’s next or am I going to wait for someone else to show me the way?
Are you going to take the time to teach yourself a new skill, pushing yourself through all those awkward stages of learning, failure and frustration to get there?
Initiative is the singular form of leadership and it’s the basis for your own personal growth that can be only directed by you.
