Power Up Passages

Wishful Thinking.

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




February 10, 2007.

"We can do, have and be exactly what we wish."
Anthony Robbins

If you have ever been to a small child’s birthday party, you have certainly heard the familiar refrain, 'Make a wish and blow out the candles.' The birthday boy or girl, the center of everyone’s attention, pauses a moment or two as he or she makes a wish and then blows mightily at the candles placed on the birthday cake. With the wish made and the candles extinguished, the attendees then get busy chomping down on the cake and ice cream.

Whether or not the wish comes true may not be all that important to the child, especially with the prospects of getting his or her hands on the cake and ice cream sitting right there in front of everyone. But don't we all secretly wish that getting our wishes fulfilled was really that easy? Simply closing our eyes and making a wish was all that was needed to bring our wishes to life.

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
Anatole France

We do all sorts of wishing virtually every day of our lives. How many of us have ever wished that we had a better job or more money? Or maybe we have wished we were faster, stronger or even better looking. We wish we had more of this and wish we had more of that. We wish here, we wish there; in fact, we wish just about everywhere.

We toss coins in a wishing well, we wish upon a star and even hope to end up with the bigger piece of the wishbone. We wish and wish and wish some more. And why do we do so much wishing? Because wishing for all sorts of things is easy, real easy. It's the making the wishes come true part that's the hard part. Or is it?

"A man, when he wishes, is the master of his fate."
Jose Ferrer

Our minds are filled with fanciful thoughts and ideas daily. We see ourselves doing, being and having all sorts of things in our mind's eye. Not only do we see ourselves living out our imaginary dreams, we can actually feel ourselves making these dreams come true. That's right, we FEEL IT deep inside of us, right down to the bone. It feels real, it feels right. Our dreams are so real we feel like we can reach out and touch them.

Yet we far too often allow these powerful notions and inspirations to dissipate into thin air, casually dismissing them as nothing more than wishful thinking on our part. Strange as it may seem to some, closing our eyes and then visualizing our dreams is an important part of making our wishes come true. Anything we can conceive in our minds and deeply believe in our hearts, we can achieve in everyday life - if we are courageous enough to do so.

"Beware what you set your heart upon. For it shall surely be yours."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is about wishful thinking. It just comes naturally. And where there is wishful thinking, there lies an opportunity to make our wishes come true. But wishing alone is never enough. Yet that is precisely where the majority drops the ball. They fail to back their wishing up with any tangible action. While their hearts desperately long for a better life, a better lot, they just cannot seem to get the lead out and get moving themselves. And a lifetime of broken dreams and unfulfilled promise is the disheartening result.

While wishing for great things is good start, it's only a start. And I'm talking about the start of something great, something words can barely describe, if we're just willing to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Not only do we need to have wish for big things and see ourselves making our wishes come alive, we need to seize the chance to breathe life into our dreams. That means taking action right here and right now. No waiting or hesitating, but jumping in with both feet and making something happen.

Conceive it, believe it - and then achieve it. It's that simple and that hard, all at the same time. The moment you set your heart on something special and then commit to making it happen no matter what, that something special will surely be yours. If you are truly ready, willing and able to pull the trigger on making your dreams come true, then a dream come true lifetime of happiness, contentment and achievement awaits.

So why wait any longer? It-s time to make that wish - and blow out the candles.

The Bottom Line: Your wish is truly your command.
