Whatever you can do…

For a long time I have really enjoyed the quote:  “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.” which is usually attributed to Goethe.  However, yesterday I came across a full paragraph leading up to this quote and was blown away by its truthfulness….and in my research to find it again today to share with you all, I came across some research that indicates perhaps it wasn’t Goethe who wrote it.  Nevertheless, read the words and let them sink in and see if they resonate with you in your time and space right here and now….

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. 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. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Do you see any patterns in your life that resemble descriptions in the paragraph above?

What do you feel after observing patterns? 

Do you dream of doing something and you’re not sure how to start it?  Or have you started it and it didn’t go the way you had hoped?

Whatever your journey, I sincerely hope that you keep dreaming and keep doing with a sense of joy, hope and gratitude.

Imagine for a moment; breathe deeply and imagine that all the energy you put towards disliking your current situation was full force in the other direction.

Imagine that you loved your job / your body / your life as much if not more than you dislike it now.

How powerful would that be to you?
That power is yours to have right now, and it has always been there for you, and it will always be there for you.

That power is you.

Goethe – one of my favourite quotes…

“Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it.

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Think on this one for a moment.  Don’t let it pass you by with a smile and an ‘oh that is nice’.  Breathe deep and think about ALL that you can do.  I mean everything.  Think of what you can create, what you enjoy doing, in the fashion of ‘if all of your needs were completely taken care of for life, and all the needs of those you love around you were taken care of too – what would you do?’.  Write out your list – the dream list.  All of the things you would do….

That is what Goethe is talking about….

Was world travel on your list?  I saw a new show last night with a host that is going around the world eating bizarre things and has created a television show out of it.  This guy travels the world and all he has to do in return for being PAID, is eat crazy stuff like frog eggs and having it on international television.  Tough life eh?  SOMEONE HAS TO LIVE IT, WHY NOT YOU?  Get creative, and really imagine what can happen if you actually tackled your list?

The world is your oyster if you see it that way my friends.  Breathe boldness into your body and follow those dreams!

If I change my Thinking I will change my Feelings. If I change my Feelings I will change my Actions. If I change my Actions, I will change my Life.”

As far as I know, this comes from an inspiring woman who took a major leap in leaving behind the comfort of a lucrative consulting business in Canada to help the people of Afghanistan establish themselves under the National Solidarity Program. She is designing her own life. There is great power in driving your own ship – and in taking it out of the harbour.
