I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
(from Walden by Henry David Thoreau)
Make the call – send the email – try it – do the thing you’ve been meaning to do. Signalling your intention to the universe is the first step on the path to your new. Any outward action that moves things from your imagination to reality works.
The beginning is the most important part of the work. (Plato)
Stop talking. Start walking.
The secret to getting ahead is getting started. (Mark Twain)
Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it. (Goethe)
