So here it is, the latest feel good quote on my roster:
"There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that never otherwise would have occurred.
...Whatever you can do, or drean you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Begin it NOW.
The thing is, I have read this quote, digested it's idealistic and beautiful core from time to time for many years. I have never once truly committed myself to move with boldness into an idea. I have half heartedly tried. I have believed I was capable of certain lofty things, which I have never followed through on. I'm thinking this has to be my year to finally commit. So here's my plan, Website, paint, paint, paint, paint, and get my stuff out there. I will have to work harder than I have ever worked for anyone and it is time that I did that work for myself, not to fulfill someone elses sales goals or to get someone elses company off the ground. To finally and authentically say "I'm in it for the long haul, come hell or high water" or as Goethé says perhaps all sorts of positive things will occur that would never otherwise have occurred.
Living in fear is not living at all and I am too old now to worry what anyone else might think or say.
Thanks for reading my little blog. I hope you are following your heart. Not because you feel entitled to something but because you know it is the path you must follow. Never leave it.
What would you do if you knew there was no way you could fail or be rejected? Where would you go?
