Stop Wishing Your Life Away.
September 13, 2002

TGIF. Thank goodness it’s Friday! How many times have we heard others, maybe even ourselves, utter that joyful refrain? Probably too often to count. I’ve even known some people who started wishing for Friday on Monday morning! Monday morning, for crying out loud.

Instead of seeing and seizing all of the fun, excitement, happiness and opportunity that life offers them Monday through Friday, these folks can only focus on getting the work week over and done with. They willingly throw five days away every week just to get two days of “freedom”. That’s seventy percent of their lives tossed in the trash can. Doesn’t sound like a great trade, does it?

But that’s not the end of the “wish” list. Not even close.

Try these on for size. I wish I had a better job. I wish I could spend more time with my kids. I wish I had more money, a nicer car, a better house … a better this or that. I wish, I wish, I wish. Does any of this sound eerily familiar?

Far too many of us needlessly spend our precious time literally wishing our lives away. Instead of going out there and making our dreams come true, many of us choose to hopelessly sit on the sidelines wishing for those things we truly desire. But wishing won’t get any of us any closer to living the rich, rewarding lives we deserve, will it? Of course not.

Why wish your life away when you can live your dreams right now? You can live the life you’ve always dreamed about when you go out and live each and every day with purpose, passion and unbridled enthusiasm.

Want a better job? Then find one or better yet, create an exciting job for yourself that allows you to follow your dreams. This new adventure, where you’re following your heart and pursuing that special “something” that drives you, excites you and makes you come alive, will give you everything you’ve ever wanted … and more. You can make a fabulous living doing the things you love so much that you do them for free. In fact, that’s precisely what the best of the best have always done.

Each day offers countless opportunities for us to do our best and be our best. These special, frozen in time moments are out there waiting for us to uncover them – even Monday through Friday. You need to open your eyes and see all of the good life offers us daily. Don’t be guilty of wishing your life away. Instead, why not grab life by the horns and live each minute with all of the fire, emotion and passion you can muster seven days a week.

Then you’ll be saying thank goodness it’s Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday too. Every day counts – so let’s make sure we make them count for something special

Here’s wishing you a power packed day that you’ll wish lasted forever.
