Pay attention to your wishes

Do you wish to have all your work for the day finished? Then devote your time to doing it, now and until it is done.

Your wishes will show you what to do, but they won’t do it. That’s your job, your responsibility, your privilege.

Do you wish you had done things differently in the past? That’s a wish you can’t fulfill, yet it’s one you can use to improve your life as you move forward.

Although you can no longer prevent the mistakes of your past, you can stop yourself from repeating them. That will make a real and positive difference in your life.

On their own, your wishes won’t make anything happen. However, informed and inspired by those wishes, you can make a lot of great things happen.

Pay attention to your wishes, and then get to work. Today, and every day, you have the opportunity to make your best wishes come true.

— Ralph Marston
