The 48 Laws of power, law 28- enter action with boldness.
If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Your doubts and hesitations will affect your execution. Timidity is dangerous. Better to enter with boldness .Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity. Everyone admires the bold, no one honors the timid.
Others claim that they were born to do this- to be extraordinary, to be genius, to be exemplary- still others claim that it was nothing but practice that set them up. Whatever it is, one thing is clear, it is the choices they made.
They chose to be fierce over fear, they chose to push when others broke, to be champions when others were just so content with winning. They chose to embrace the power of momentum, to keep motivation and discipline the driving force. Motivation keeps you on the right track, discipline keeps you going.
Momentum is the greatest of all change agents. John C Maxwell gives the analogy of boiling water. Water boils at 212 degrees, but at 211 degrees it is just hot water. One extra degree, an increase of less than one half of one percent, can make the difference between a pot of languishing liquid and a bubbling caldron of power.
Momentum is the greatest asset that a leader has to enhance his influence. Momentum makes it possible to achieve the goal with a little ease and more speed. It consolidates the gains made and develops a strategy born out of inspiration to achieve much more.
Be ruthless on yourself; do not repeat the same tired things. Wage war on your mind, allowing no static lines of defense- make everything fluid and mobile.
