Why Genius Power & Magic?
It was 2006, the housing market was booming, wars in the Middle East were ongoing, and I was in Germany WAY outside my comfort zone.
One day I came across a quote attributed to Goethe. In actuality, it is from a book called “The Scottish Himalayan Expedition,” by William Harrison Murray, a Scottish author and outdoorsman who scaled the Himalayas (specifically Mount Everest) in the 50s.
Murray said of that experience, speaking about what happened when the expedition was still in the idea stage:
… but when I said that nothing had been done I erred in one important matter. We had definitely committed ourselves and were halfway out of our ruts. We had put down our passage money— booked a sailing to Bombay. 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. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and 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!
— William Harrison Murray —
The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951)
This hit me hard. Whether you believe in God or the Universe or nothing, I think most people believe in a connection to someone or something or some force greater than themselves. Let’s call that Providence.
Since that time, I have tried to live in a way that I was taking action and moving forward (with varying degrees of success). I have found that when I am bold and move forward, taking action and committing to an idea, Providence takes reciprocal action. Things start to happen, seemingly “behind the scenes” to help me make my dream a reality.
I decided to name my company “Genius Power & Magic” not because the company itself is inherently genius, powerful, and/or magical, but because taking action and committing is bold, and in boldness lies the work and effort of Providence, and therein lies Genius Power & Magic.
