“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that 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 do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Maybe it means finally slaying the debt dragon, un-saddling from the burdens of smoking, breaking free from the caustic relationships that keep you down or calling it a day at the property management job you hold today.
Commitment is a Choice
There is a little word with a very powerful meaning that stands at the chasm between stimulus and response. That word is choice. Every response carries before it a set of circumstances that are premises for your choice. This week, step back and look at them sharply. Then choose, despite any and all fears, and go for it. You owe it to your self.
