One of my all-time favourite quotes is:
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.
The moment one definitely commits oneself - 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 favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can - begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
W.H. Murry The Scottish Himalayan Expedition, 1951
