We all have dreams.
Become an astronaut, play for the Boston Red Sox, marry Angelina Jolie (or Brad Pitt), write for the Washington Post.
While some dreams are just highly unlikely no matter how much effort you put in (trying to hard to try and get Angelina Jolie to fall in love with has some steep consequences.) However if you want to be an astronaut you study rocket science and spend years earning the technical background to get into NASA. Anything is possible if you are willing to put in enough effort and initiative.
Two weeks ago I looked at some of the success of others around me and wished I could achieve that same level. I wished that I was noticed and recognized like they were.
After wishing and wishing I decided to stop wishing and start doing. You could wish that you get noticed by happenstance or you can go out and find out what you need to do to get what you want and do it.
Wishing is passive, you put your life in the hands of fate- hoping for a favorable outcome. While that works for some people, why wait for something that may not come? Instead of waiting, act.
Complete this phrase: “I wish…”
Take that statement and replace “I wish” with “I will.” Notice how you now have to change your statement.
Now what are you going to do to make your dreams come true?
