Words To Live By

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back–always ineffectiveness. 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.

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

Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

Begin it now.”

  • I have always loved that quote. …and often lived by it, because I’ve seen it in action repeatedly. Keep talking about how things are coming together, that in and of itself adds momentum to everything continuing to move in the right direction. You should rent Wayne Dyer’s The Power of Intention. He talks about this kind of thing in a very real world way. xoxo

  • And in the act of beginning, everything seems to fall into place. It is an amazing thing. Brilliant quote. I need to remember this every single day. Thank you.
