You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.

Achieve what you desire

The results you get are not simply a function of what you desire. They’re a function of what your desires inspire you to do.

On its own, without any further action, setting a goal is meaningless. For a goal to matter it must prompt you to make some change in the way you live your life.

What do you desire, in your personal life, in your career, in your level of physical fitness? What commitment are you willing to make, what actions are you willing to take, to fulfill those desires?

It can be fun to dream and to wish. What’s a whole lot more satisfying and a whole lot more work is to achieve what you desire.

Fortunately, you have the power to transform dreams into reality. You can think, you can act, you can learn, adapt, and persist.

You’re never too old, too young, too rich or too poor to set a meaningful goal and work toward it. No matter your situation, it’s always a great thing to do.
