Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
How much time do you spend wishing you had this or wishing you could do that? If you're like the majority of us, you probably spend more time wishing than actually doing. We wish here, we wish there; in fact, we wish virtually everywhere.
Truth be told, way too many of us spend way too much time wishing our lives away. After all, wishing for the things we want in life is relatively easy. Wishing doesn't take any effort and better yet, doesn't require any risk. All we have to do is make a wish. Unfortunately, wishing alone doesn't get the job done.
Wishing does not make a poor man rich.
In case you haven't noticed, we live in an 'instant gratification is not soon enough' world. Not surprisingly, we've grown increasingly accustomed to wanting what we want and expecting to receive right away. And the sooner we get it, the better.
So when we see the good life others are living, we naturally want a piece of the action as well. Not sooner or later, but right this very minute. While a few of us get busy using our talents to make those dreams a reality, the rest get busy wishing and wishing and wishing some more.
"Many of us spend half of our time wishing for things we could have if we didn't spend half our time wishing."
Now I'll grant you that it's always a lot easier to wish for something than get busy making it happen. After all, wishing is easy and effortless. In fact, wishing is almost too easy. But wishing rarely cuts the mustard either.
Please don't get me wrong here. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wishing. It's only natural that we should wish for the best life has to offer. But wishing without action is little more than lost opportunity. If we really wish to make our lives everything they could be and more, we've got to roll up our sleeves and get to work.
"Work will win when wishy washy wishing won't."
Thomas S. Monson
Making our dreams come true requires a lot more than dropping coins into a wishing well. It takes dedication, focus, commitment and determination. If that sounds a lot like work to you, then you're on the right track. It's not enough to merely wish for something, you've got to really WANT IT if you're ever going to receive it.
Turning your wishes into reality can be achieved by adopting this simple four step approach to anything and everything you truly desire.
NAME IT - Clearly spell out whatever you want to have, be and do in your lifetime.
CLAIM IT - Make it yours by dedicating your time and channeling your effort and energies into making it happen.
BELIEVE IT - Believe, with every ounce of energy within you, that you can make your dreams come true.
ACHIEVE IT - Then get going and bring your dreams to life each and every day.
Why wish your life away when the life you desire is there for the taking? Reach out and grab it and never let it go.
The Bottom Line: When you get busy going after the things you want, you'll start making your wishes come true.
