Goethe- A Quote For the Ages


Here is a timeless quote from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1774-1832) that has shaken me up to action and productive living like none other:

"Until one is committed there is 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 definetly commits oneself the Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help that would not otherwise have occured. A whole stream of events 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, begin it! Boldness has genius, magic and power in it.---Begin it now."

Every Creative Consultant should emblazen these immortal words into his lexicon of memory and, more importantly, live by its true creed for higher attainment and greater achievements.
