“It is not enough to want to make the effort. It’s in the doing, not just the thinking that we accomplish our goals” Thomas S. Monson
Wishing is not enough.
I wish I was thinner.
I wish we had more money.
I wish I could travel.
I wish I could run a marathon.
I wish I was a better cook.
I wish I got better grades?
What really does “wishing” do?
Perhaps, it can help us figure out what we really want. But, to make it happen? We need to DO something.
I realize of course, that there are some things that all the hard work in the world won’t change. I’m not talking about the things that are completely out of our circle of control (but we can control our attitude about these things…)
I’m talking about the kind of things we “wish for”, but we don’t necessarily “act for”. We can’t accomplish our goals with good intentions, or thinking about them, or even stating them.
Those are starting points. We need to jump right in and become “doers” if we want to achieve the goals we set for ourselves.
(We also need to make sure we are setting goals for ourselves – ones that push us to be the best we can be)
So, go DO!!
