27. Until One Is Committed - Goethe

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.
