“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise 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, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” Attributed to Goethe
I highlighted the final sentence in this quote because it reminds me of what Army leaders need to be…bold, confident and agile…able to adapt and overcome any obstacle that may come their way…you have to inspire, find the strength from within to be capable leaders, especially in today’s Army.
