The Magic of Boldness

We all have dreams.  Some dreams come true and others do not.  So, why do some dreams come true, while others remain elusive?  Well, one difference is how we approach our dreams.  I was reading this quote and I found several answers:

Each indecision brings its own delays and days are lost lamenting over lost days.  What you can do or think you can do, begin it.  For boldness has magic, power and genius in it. — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This quote reminded me of the powerful and yet sometimes destructive force our indecision can have on our dreams!   We all have experienced those aha moments when a bright idea flashed into our mind and suddenly we knew we should act!  What happened next is the key to whether one is able to move forward or fall into the pit of doubt and lament.   When was the last time you had a great idea only to waver regarding the next step?

So what are the answers:

  1. When we get an idea we should move quickly to capture the idea.   Write down the idea.  Research ways to accomplish it.  Make sure you are moving towards the thought!
  2. Refuse to be indecisive.  Work on your decision-making skills.  Read books.  Ask a friend to hold you accountable in this area.
  3. Do not give in to worrying about past mistakes instead determine to become a person who makes wise decision and moves toward their dreams and goals!
  4. Dare to be bold!

When you and I follow the answers above based on  von Goethe’s quote indecision disappears and we will find “the magic of boldness” leading us into a new realm of possibility.

Wishing you the magic of boldness,
