I was flipping through my tattered copy of Creative Authenticity recently and came across this highlighted passage where the author quoted the following (attributed to both Goethe and W.H. Murray):
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to pull back, always ineffectivess. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and endless 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 occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.
Crikey. That passage blows me away. Blows me clean out of the water.
Let's do it. Let's jump.
Let's begin it now.
