Living the Dream

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

This is what I desire—the elements of genius and power that are attached to boldness. Truly, in my moments of indecision I embody confusion and apprehension, two qualities of which are not very becoming. Furthermore, they are traits that only trigger an incessant downward spiral within my thoughts and behavior. I can dream of wild possibilities for my future, knowing that I have the tools to attain these hopes. Simply put, I need to stop telling myself “no,” and instead, start asking myself, “how?”
