Boldness

Until on 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, the Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. Whatever you can to or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now!

This weekend I was speaking with a friend, filled with sun and sea air and smiles, and he walked away in the middle of a sentence, disappeared, only to return minutes later with this quote printed on a piece of paper.

A gift. Boldness. Grab the magic.

It made me think back to all the times when I have seen this happen in my own life, and in those of others around me. How wonderful when opportunities line up like dominoes, seemingly placed there by fate, but really in reaction to that decision to grab life by the horns and swoop along at a gallop, whooping as you go.

You just need to decide what it is, and commit yourself.
