628 | So many downsides until this happens

In my reading time yesterday I came across a quote I want to share with you.

“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 events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: ‘Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!”

~W.H. Murray’s brilliant thoughts on the matter from his Scottish Himalaya Expedition.

Recently I made a commitment to a journey I’ve been wanting to take for 26 years, but have been very afraid to take. I committed knowing there was going to be some high prices to pay.

In just over a week, “providence moved” and things I thought would be nearly financially fatal shifted and went in the other direction.

2 weeks after I committed I’ve already had, as the quote suggested, unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which I couldn’t have dreamed would come my way.

All because of locking into a dream with committing.

This isn’t the first time either.

Commitment has been something I’ve used for years.

I’d like to pass this magic sword of commitment to you now…

Commit to your dreams and take a small action on them now.

P.S. Remember Goethe’s quote: “Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now!”

Damn right.
