This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence.

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.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen
incidents, meetings and material assistance,
which no man could have dreamt
would have come his way.
