The Beginning

Until one is committed,

there is a hesitancy,

the chance to draw back,

always ineffectiveness,

concerning all acts of initiative and creation.

There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:

that the moment one definitely commits oneself,

then providence moves, too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never have otherwise occured.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no person could have dreamed would come their way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it.

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Begin it now.

-Goethe

    Here’s another, similar quote that I like: “Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.”
    It’s true.
