2012: To Be or…Not To Be — Committed

Now is a really good time to look at what you’re planning to make happen this year, and execute. Sure, it’s a bit crazy out there, but no matter how uncertain the future may seem, there are always opportunities. We just have to find them.

What you’re standing for and committed to can make the deciding difference in how this year turns out. Be unreasonable in the face of uncertainty, expect to have it go your way. When it comes right down to it, the ability for someone to commit and execute can likely be attributed to more achievements and breakthroughs than anything else.

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 incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.

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