Boldness has genius in it

"This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence. 

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. 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 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 believe you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."

- William H. Murray - 


Why did I want to share with you these few lines from Murray? Because I wouldn't have said it better. 

I wrote these words down on a notebook few months ago, and I often go over them to be sure I don't forget it: commitment has a lot of power. 

When you switch the light on something you want to do, there is no way to go back. It's not a matter of will, it's a need. If you still need willpower it means that there is a conflict inside you, something you have to overcome before starting. But when you are committed to your project, your ideas, your dreams, then all the conflicts are over. This doesn't mean that all your doubts are gone too. It  just means that giving up is not an option anymore. 

And from that moment on, you start seeing new possibilities, getting to know people who can help you, and all sorts of support comes over in your life. It's kind of magic and it's pretty difficult to explain. I suggest you to try, to start. Now. 

Trust me. And trust Murray.
