Rise & be decisive

 "The moment you commit and quit holding back, all sorts of unforseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance will rise to help you.  The simple act of commitment is a powerful magnet for help." - Napolean Hill

In the spirit of keeping last week's posts about goals & goal setting + a bit of encouragement to overcome your obstacles going, I thought I would share an excerpt from the book "Warrior of the Light" by my all time fave author, Paulo Coehlo, to get your Monday morning & your week off to a better than best start. Because this is the thing, you need to start somewhere.  You can set goals, but you need to begin working towards achieving them in this very moment. There will never be the perfect time, place or circumstance to begin on your path to making things happen, and you'll always find a reason not to do something.  The time & place is right now.  Make a decision, whether it's something that has been nagging you consciously (or maybe even subconsciously); make up your mind and get started immediately. Decisions are yours to make, so own them.

When I draw my bow, says Herrigel to his Zen master,
there comes a point when I feel as if I will get breathless
if I do not let it fly at once.

If you continue to try to provoke the moment when you
must release the arrow, you will never learn the art of
the archer, says his master.  Sometimes, it is the archer's
own overactive desire that ruins the accuracy of the shot.

We sometimes think: "If I do not do something, it will not be done".

It is not quite like that: He must act, but he must allow room for the Universe to act too.

 Awesome, right?!  Enjoy it, love it & make it a great day,
Coach 'e'
