MOTIVATIONAL MONDAYS: It starts with making a commitment

"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, the 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 behind it. Begin it now." Goethe 

This quote has intense strength behind it and it always reminds me about the power of making a commitment to something and how it can deliver magnificent effects.  You can make plans and goal-set all day long but without commitment, they can easily go astray and the universe starts to get confused on what you really want.  

No matter what industry you work in, there are going to be major twists and turns that you will face whether it be with the working conditions, the people you work with, your desire to be more fulfilled, or unfair politics.  These things are inevitable and can either tear us down or, if we COMMIT, they can build our character enabling us to see the miracle hiding in each. 

Today, as we being the month of July, I challenge you to commit to ONE thing.  Not 2, 3, or 10...ONE.  One thing that you will wrap handcuffs around or imprint into your skin.  Then be alert and see the things that begin to work in your favor and the opportunities that begin to present themselves.  Luckily, I'm speaking out of experience and not just mere theory.  Those who commit undyingly (yes I wrote undyingly) will be the ultimate winners in the end so stop hesitating and "begin it now."
