Success not only depends on talent, but also requires initiative.
Cas, what exactly is "initiative" in a sentence like "success requires initiative"? The ability to decide what to do? I don't quite get the long explanation in the dictionary. :(
The ability to do/start something on your own. :wink: That is, no one tells you what to do or how to do something. You see a situation and decide on your own how to act. Management (i.e., supervisors, managers, bosses) usually has initiative. In North America, companies tend to hire people with initiative/who have initiative. :)
A. Where everything belongs to the people.
B. Where everywhere you look there are people.
Cas, I meant "A", literally. I have no idea how it appeared to a native speaker that I might be suggesting "B".
We have almost everything labelled "people's", like "people's republic", "people's army", "people's court", etc. However, they are ignoring one simple fact: the more whatever you get, the more it gets unworthy. :)
