“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.”
– quote by Scottish mountaineer William Hutchinson Murray
Note: While this quote is often said to be by Goethe, after checking various references, it appears that is not true.
I love this quote.
When you aren’t fully committed to something, it is much easier to just give up.
When you make a decision and a commitment, however, you begin to take action.
And when you begin to take action and your thoughts and actions are in line, you often see opportunities open up in new and surprising ways.
Is there something you want? Are you ready to make a decision and a commitment?
