A LITTLE INSPIRATION
A quotation by William Hutchison Murray is widely misattributed to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The following passage occurs near the beginning of Murray’s The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951):
“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: 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 favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:
- Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
- Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
I remember the first time I wanted to contact a mentor and I was scared. It takes a bucket-load of courage to step out as you really are and ignite the light inside of you. But you know that your #SoulWork is calling you, right?
I get that email can be a safe place to begin, so take a deep breath, don’t be scared & ask me. I promise I don’t bite and I give really good advice.
