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 DIFINITELY 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.
"All great and extraordinary actions come from the heart"

From the glow of enthusiasm
I let the melody escape.
I pursue it. Breathless I catch up with it.
It flies again, it disappears, it plunges into
a chaos of diverse emotions.
I catch it again, I seize it, I embrace it with delight…
I multiply it by modulations,
And at last I triumph in the first theme.
There is the whole symphony.
~Ludwig Van Beethoven
Lots of folks confuse bad management with Destiny.
I have no parents; I make heaven and earth my parents.
I have no divine power; I make honesty my power.
I have no means; I make submission my means.
I have no magic power; I make inward strength my magic.I have no friends; I make my mind my friend.I have no enemy;
I make incautiousness my enemy.
I have no armor; I make goodwill and righteousness my armor.
I have no castle; I make immovable Mind my castle.
~The Samurai's Zen Creed
