Stop Wishing Start Doing


Humans are the most ambitious species on the planet, but they are also the most lazy. We all want to be successful, and we all wish we could have prevented something bad from happening in our lives, but very few people actually take steps to make their dreams come true.

We want to be a great doctor, an efficient engineer, a captivating singer, a fantastic cricketer, and so on. We wish we could give interviews to that large corporation; we wish we could play with that musician; we wish we could play with a specific sportsperson once in our lives. We all have a long list of desires.

However, we don’t understand one minor detail. We don’t realise that instead of simply waiting for something to happen to us, if we make an effort to make it happen, we may get one step closer to our dream, our wishes.

Remember that if you have a dream or a goal, you have the ability to achieve it. It appeared to you because you were ready and capable of beginning the journey to realise your dream. You must complete the remaining tasks on your own.

You must continue to pursue it. You must continue to fight for it. The world will continue to throw problems at you. However, you must still manage to keep it. You will go through difficult times, and your dreams will be threatened, but you must protect them. You must keep them alive.

Because you should always remember that sticking to your goal will only help you improve your ability to achieve it. As a result, whenever you wish for something, take a few steps to get there. Nothing comes for free; you must work for it.

    Great post and this statement really hit home for me … “It appeared to you because you were ready and capable of beginning the journey to realise your dream” … what great motivation! Sorry I’ve not figured out how to copy/share your text so it looks like it does when others share 🙂

      I can relate to that. All I do is keep trying even when I don’t want to or odds are against me. Hope that helps.!
