Advice is one of those things it is far more blessed to give than to receive.

Move past wishing

Your wish won’t make it so. Move past wishing and get yourself doing.

Reality does not respond to mere wishes. To bend reality in the desired direction, someone must take action.

The best person for that job is you. When it’s your wish, or the wish of someone you care about, it’s up to you to do the work.

It’s a good thing that wishes don’t come true on their own accord. If you could get anything just by wishing, nothing would offer any meaning, value, or fulfillment.

As it is, every genuine desire gives you the opportunity to make a difference using skill, effort, commitment and more. Life has great potential for richness because it is built on more than empty wishes.

Your wish will do nothing until you do something. In that truth is a world of opportunity and fulfillment.

— Ralph Marston
