30 Apr Decide & Commit
What does it take to accomplish your goals, to get traction in life? Decision and commitment are critical. Here is a philosophical musing by W.H. Murray regarding the cause and effect of commitment. Consider where you are waffling in decision and commitment and ask yourself what is it that you need to decide and what do you need to do to really commit. Your future is ahead of you. Embrace it. Enjoy it. Live it!
The Power of Commitment By W.H. Murray
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that 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 otherwise have 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 have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for Goethe’s couplet:
‘Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
