This was probably one of my mom’s favorite, if cruder bits of wisdom she passed on to me.
I like the more fairy tale version… If wishes were horses, all beggars would ride.
But both of them come around to the same idea. You can’t just wish something into being.
Here’s where all The Secret and Affirmation fans stop reading. LOL But I believe that works too, IF, you add a little elbow grease into the mix.
Luck equals opportunity plus hard work.
Yep, I’m just full of these mantra’s today.
I guess what’s got me going off is people saying I get so much done. And then they add, “I don’t know how you do it.” What I want to respond is, “Honey, I get half of what I want to get done.” But instead, I smile and start talking strategies to reach goals. I’m a firm believer in an overflowing to do list.
I woke up thinking about a project (non-fiction) that I have a perfect venue to announce and get it started. All I need is to develop a website and some marketing material. By July. I’ve been thinking about this project for at least two years now, maybe as many as eight years.
Today it’s going on my calendar to be done in July.
And it’s going on my to do list.
It moved from a wish to a task. And if you have had this issue in your life, or the lives of your loved ones, I think you’re going to love the final result.
At least I hope so.
So, after that cryptic intro, what are you thinking about doing? What’s on your bucket list that you need to move to the to do list for today (or this week, this year)?
I’d love to hear your dreams.
