The Genius, Power, and Magic of Boldness

Please read carefully these words from W.H. Murray, from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition:
"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, and 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.

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."In order to accomplish any of your dreams or goals, you must take forceful, decisive action.

You must take action. Whatever it is you want to do, you must do it with true emotional commitment. This means taking risks, being fearless, and persevering. Most people’s most serious regret in life comes from not having taken the risk to try something they truly wanted to do.

The universe is on your side. If you fail at one thing, you learn valuable lessons for your next adventure. If you keep at it, you will inevitably create the type of life you desire.
