Magic of Commitment.


    I have found over the years that when you commit to a project whether it is starting a business, a new relationship or learning a new skill, opportunities arise that you ordinarily would not have noticed.

    William Hutchinson Murray, from his 1951 book entitled The Scottish Himalayan Expedition says it best, “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.”

    I’ve always called this Initiating the Discovery Process because when you combine your commitment – your powerful desire – to solve a problem or satisfy a particular need, your subconscious mind will work on it 24/7.

    To understand how this works, think of the last time you were in the market for a new car. After shopping the market, you selected a particular make and model. Up until that time you hardly ever noticed that car on the road, but now that you have committed to it – suddenly you see them everywhere! Opportunities present themselves in the same way.

    Commitment has a way of creating its own motivation. Go for it – and see what comes your way!
