1. Our #1 Ally

1.1. Our Heart ... not our Logic

1.1.1. You are cocky enough to believe you will figure it out

1.1.1.1. Even though you may not know how hard it is going to be

1.1.2. Act first

1.1.2.1. Revise later

1.1.2.2. Attack now

1.1.3. We have to believe in what is not visible YET

1.1.3.1. It defies all logic. But we believe

1.1.4. Logic will stop most people

1.1.4.1. But not you!

2. Our #1 Enemy

2.1. RESISTANCE

2.1.1. It prevents us from doing what is most important to us

2.1.1.1. Living to our purpose

2.1.1.2. Growing ourselves

2.1.1.3. Living our calling

2.1.1.4. The more important something is - the more likely resistance will show up.

2.1.2. We ALL have it

2.1.2.1. No matter how far we have come

2.1.2.2. No matter who we are

2.1.3. It never goes away ....

2.1.3.3. It is there every morning... waiting for us

2.1.4. Resistance is inside us - but it is not us

2.1.4.1. It is the critic inside of us

2.1.4.2. The little voice inside of us

2.1.4.3. But it is not our true voice

2.1.4.4. We have to fight it every single moment

2.1.4.4.1. Or it will take over

3. Start Before You’re Ready

3.1. Attack Now. Don't wait to get Ready

3.1.1. Lack of preparation does not rob dreams

3.1.2. Resistance is the one that robs dreams

3.1.2.1. Resistance grows with waiting

3.1.2.2. Resistance grows with preparation time

3.2. Commit First. Figure it out later

3.2.1. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. 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 favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!” ― William Hutchison Murray
