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 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, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
— W.H. Murray, The Scottish Himalaya Expedition, 1951
Yet again this quote inspires me to get going, to step forward. In the midst of complete fear, looking at a life FULL of unknowns, I’m ready.
I boldly commit to the vision of my future…
Providence, bring it on!
Something to reflect on:
Spring is in the air. What’s blossoming in your world? What has been calling to you? What could you commit to?
