Is it time to stop wishing?

Dec 4 – Is it time to stop wishing? Are you wishing things could be different or would happen faster or more easily? Does it feel as though you are always just out of reach of where you want to be? This wishful way of thinking could be the problem. Think back to your childhood and how wishes came true through the magic of a fairy godmother or genie. We have been conditioned to believe that wishes being granted are out of our control from a very young age. However, what you desire and truly want in your life should not be viewed as a wish, but what it actually is … a desire … a goal. Once you stop wishing and start giving yourself the power you have within you to achieve it, you are now embracing the power of HOPE.

Take an MM&I Moment to awaken your HOPE for what you desire. What is your Heart truly telling you about why what you want matters and is so important? List these thoughts now. How Optimistic are you in it becoming your reality? Take a moment to list all the positive things you will realize. How are your Passions being leveraged and incorporated into making the desire happen? List what you are most passionate about and how these passions relate. And finally, what Effort are you taking every day to make your desire your reality? List steps you have taken and steps you can take. The divinity of HOPE is when your heart, optimism, passions, and effort are aligned. You are dream doing instead of daydreaming. And that’s why hope trumps wishing every single time.
