I came across this quote pasted over the copy machine at the Center where I did my research internship.
"The Power of Initiative...No one else has the same exact dream as you, so there is no competition, it is a playing field that is wide open. There is no way to lose, only to do your personal best.
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back -
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 this way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Begin it now." -- Goethe
Show up, be willing, that's how it starts. The Universe of people, love and resources can't step in to help if you don't show up to your own dream/vision.
With this freedom, support, hope and possibility - what will you choose? What will you decide to do? Let me know. I love those kind of stories.
