Here's one of my favorite quotes (by Goethe) about creativity and changing the course of one's life:
"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, their providence moves, too.
All sorts of things occur that would never otherwise have 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 (human) could have dreamed would come his way".
I believe this thought to be true since it has happened in my life so many times.
So for anyone who is attempting to start something new, explore a different path, jump off the diving board of certainty into the unknown, remember this!
