It’s been said that the act of making a decision is power. That true but it’s just the first step. Once you decide, you must then commit to doing, being, having or creating it. Decision and commitment will be the impetus to get you going and also the fuel to keep you going until you reach your goal.
Fear and lack of belief in myself used to keep me from making real decisions about the life I wanted. But my biggest decision-making barrier was this: I always wanted to know how I would accomplish something before I would decide to go for it. The people I know who are very successful in creating whatever they want, most often decide first and figure out how later.
There is a wonderful quote by Goethe I have referred to many times and one in which I whole-heartedly believe…
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 dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
What do you want? What would it take for you to make a real, cut-off any other possibility decision to be, do, have or create it?
