Until One is Committed...

Boldness

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it

CONCERNING ACTS OF CREATION

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

Concerning 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
thenProvidence 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 one could have dreamt
would come their way.

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

— GOETHE
