“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand, melting like a snowflake.”
Sir Frances Bacon
Be bold and begin. How often do we miss opportunities to create, provide, or serve? How often do our ideas lay idle waiting for that perfect moment when everything is just right-perfection paralysis? Perfection is found in the moment, not in the waiting for the right time.
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
Being bold is nature’s way. It is the beginning of getting nature’s work accomplished. That which has not yet begun cannot get finished. Nature never hesitates to be bold.
Nature does not wait for the right moment to be bold, nor does it procrastinate its boldness. With pinpoint accuracy and, simultaneously, random unpredictability, nature grabs our attention, boldly beginning repeatedly. From the vivid visage of a parrot tulip, to the power of a thunder and lightning storm, to the soaring magnificence of a giant redwood, to the awesome power of an exploding volcano, nature stuns us with the power of its boldness. And if you’ve ever been stung by an insect, you know that even nature’s tiniest representatives can be bold!
Being bold builds momentum.
Beginning creates action, and gets things going.
Being bold doesn’t mean being reckless or brash. It means to do the work you were meant to do. It is about the start of your purpose and your passion, your projects, your ideas. It is about blooming your ideas to the culmination of their potential. How many great ideas have you had that are just that – ideas? Get the thing started and move with it. Your ideas are counting on you!
Begin. Put your ideas, your plans, and your most creative dreams out there on the table. Simply committing to your plan identifies your seed of potential and begins the process to cultivate that seed of an idea, your plan, into a growing process. But it can’t grow till it gets planted, started. “Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
Share your greatness with the world now.
Your ideas are counting on you.
Be Bold. Begin.
