Commit

“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.” – W. H. Murray

Much of our activity is busy work, running faster to get our “to dos” complete without questioning what we are doing in the first place. We need to slow down to have our “lazy” days or enough moments each day where we can be quiet and still enough to think, to connect with what’s inside. Vacations scattered throughout the year and “someday soon” are not enough. Daily, a bite at a time.

And when clarity strikes, and it will, commit and move boldly into your purpose and who you are meant to be each and every day. We’ll still have busy work to do, but it will be in the background and we’ll be pursuing what’s right and investing our time in what’s most important. When we do our part with work and commitment, the rest will fall in place.

 

“The more the soul knows, the more she loves, and loving much, she tastes much.” – W. H. Murray
