When is #2 Just As Good As #1?

“This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence.

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.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.

I 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!”

― W.H. Murray

If you had told me at the start of this year that my book, The Inner CEO, would get into the Top 10 of the best-seller list my inner voice would have said:

“I like the way you’re thinking, I’m just not sure how.”

On Saturday, I found out it came in at #2 on the official best-seller list for Ireland.

Honestly, this is the impossible achieved. A pleasant bonus on the journey of life. Just to get into the Top 10 would have been amazing.

My colleague, Joseph Jaworski, shared the above quote recently in a program I am facilitating with him and his business partner, Susan Taylor. It’s a seminar in itself and I thought you’d appreciate it.

For me, it resonates strongly because of what has just happened. This book has challenged my levels of commitment in many many ways – and it still is.

But what’s even better than seeing it on the best-seller list though is some of the early feedback coming in which contains the words I was hoping for.

Relatable. Easy to digest. Accessible. Surprisingly profound.

Maybe the most meaningful comment to me was this one:

‘It’s a book full of hope’.

Hope that we can make things better – in our work, our lives and our world.

I have no doubt that inside you there are things waiting to be born.

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

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”

What is the thing you can begin?
