Begin It Now - "Boldness Has Genius, Power, and Magic in It"

One of my favorite quotes is from William Hutchison Murray: “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, meetings, and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have 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. Begin it now.'”

This passage addresses the power of commitment in achieving our goals. Until we commit, we are hesitant and ineffective. But, once we commit, providence moves to support us.

This idea has been echoed by successful individuals throughout history. Boldness is essential in achieving success, as it involves taking risks and embracing uncertainty.

The genius, power, and magic of boldness helps us tap into a higher power that guides us towards our goals.

When we take that first step towards our goals, we set in motion a chain of events that can lead us to success. The act of committing to a particular course of action helps us to focus our energy and attention on what we want to achieve. We become more determined, motivated, and creative in finding ways to overcome obstacles and make progress towards our objectives.

Boldness involves taking risks, being courageous, and not being afraid to fail. It requires a willingness to step out of our comfort zones and embrace uncertainty. When we are bold, we open ourselves up to new opportunities and experiences that can move us toward our goals.

So, be bold, take the first step towards your goals, and trust that providence will move in your favor.
