Whatever you can do, or dream, Begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it - Begin it now.

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

“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 dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Okay, so I always thought this quote was by the German poet Goethe, but, according to about.com, it's not. It's by a guy named William Hutchinson Murray (1913-1996), from his 1951 book entitled The Scottish Himalayan Expedition.

Whatever, it's a quote that has always inspired me without overwhelming me. Basically, it says, if you take the first step towards your dream, and plod steadily forward, the unvierse will follow, or ... help.

So, yesterday was the first step towards mine, and today starts the second.

Begin your dreams.

    Thank you! An acting coach introduced this quote to me a few years ago, and I have used it as inspiration ever since. It especially helps to keep this in mind when the goal seems too intimidiating to reach.

Good luck you guys! XOXO emoticon emoticon
