They also will not write proposals, get trademarks and copyrights, find vendors, get publicity, draw up a business plan, advertise, sell products, build relationships, or do windows.
There is a passage in the Christian New Testament, in the Book of James, where he writes ‘Faith without works is dead’. Truer religious words have never been spoken. But replace the word ‘faith’ with the word ‘wishes’ and see if it isn’t the exact same truth. Replace it with the word ‘dreams’. Replace it with the word ‘hope’. Replace it with the word ‘want’. What do you find? Basically James was saying either put up or shut up. If you are going to say you have faith, then prove it. The same is true in the world of wishes and dreams.
You want to fulfill your wishes and dreams? Then make this your pact with yourself:
- Ever time you SAY a wish or dream you will have ALREADY taken one step towards it.
Not the whole journey, not a huge, gigantic leap. Just one step. It doesn’t mean every wish or dream is going to come to pass, but it does mean you will be basing your life’s wishes and dreams in a more inspirational world. Because a truly inspirational world is one where you see things happen, you see YOURSELF make them happen. THAT is inspiration made real, that is a wish that has done dishes.
