“The power of decision is actually the power of sanity. And just as you can run away and then become afraid, as well as become afraid and run away (it works both ways, you see: you can become afraid and then run away or you can just run away and by the action of running away become afraid, because you’re dramatizing being afraid, so you will agreeably become emotionally afraid), so it can work that simply by being decisive, you come way up Tone Scale.
“You just artificially get decisive. You come up Tone Scale. In other words, don’t look at this—don’t look at this now as ‘The only method of being decisive is to come up Tone Scale and then be decisive.’
“No, there’s another method. And that is: get decisive and come up Tone Scale.”
“It is better to try big things, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much.”
Your action for today is to think of something big that you’ve been putting off for fear of failing and take one step toward achieving it.
