As Isaac Newton rightly postulated, a body will continue to be in its state of rest or uniform motion unless acted upon by a force. As it is in Physics, so it is in the real world. Some things can wait, but certainly not our dreams. Our dreams and aspirations will not come to fruition if we fail to act. It is not enough to have a brilliant plan or idea without acting; it robs our tomorrow of its potentials. It is not enough to sound tough, we must walk our talk if we must achieve our goals. It is not enough to have a blueprint of the future, action sets the ball rolling.

“The moment one definitely 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 issue from the decision raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, and meetings and material assistances which no man would have dreamed could come his way.” said William Murray. As it can be deduced from the words of the sage, it will interest you to know that our universe has ample provisions in stock to help us in our pursuits; all the universe requires of us is that we conquer inertia by way of committing ourselves to a cause. You bet.

In pursuing your target, ensure that you do not entertain doubt as our doubts, according to William Shakespeare, are traitors; they make us lose the good we often might win, by fearing to attempt.

Conclusively, as Von Goethe advised, I reiterate that “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it”.
