When you decide that a thing will occur, clamp down on it and refuse to let go; tell it that the outcome is already decided – the only remaining question is how much resistance it will put up. This is how you decide that a thing will occur, and how you ensure it does occur. It’s how a thing that should occur becomes a thing that must occur.
