One of my Favourite Quotes

... that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves, too.

It is extracted from this:

"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. The whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material his way. I have 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.'"
(from W.H. Murray, "The Scottish Himalayan Expedition")

To me, it's like when you decide you want something badly enough, the universe will help you achieve your dreams. Simply because you've open your mind and heart to all possibilities of achieving your goals. And you will, simply because you've set your heart to it.

So, dream big and let go; learn to trust yourself and the universe.
