“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” – Zig Ziglar
Below is an excerpt from the Scottish Himalayan Expedition by W.H. Murray.
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 definitely commits oneself,
then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur
to help one that would otherwise
never 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.
