“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.” ~ William Hutchinson Murray
“Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
“Workouts are like brushing my teeth; I don’t think about them, I just do them. The decision has already been made.” ~ Patti Sue Plumer, U.S. Olympian
“The hardest thing about exercise is to start doing it. Once you are doing exercise regularly, the hardest thing is to stop it.” ~ Erin Gray
“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” ~ Will Rogers

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson, via Do the Work
…And why you should always ‘Stay Hungry and Foolish.’

“You must not only aim right, but draw the bow with all your might.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

“Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God.” ~ Mary Manin Morrissey
