Commitment

Whether you choose a lifestyle of climbing the corporate ladder or one of escaping the rat race, there is one thing you will need for however you define success, and that one thing is ...


Commitment

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 ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, that no man could have dreamed would 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
