I cringe when people say “I wish.”
I wish I could do that. I wish I was like that. I wish I had that. I wish I could go there.
You know what? You can! You just have to figure out what it takes to get there, then DO IT. Saying “I wish” creates some far-fetched dream that will never be brought to fruition. A dream that, because of self-imposed limitations, you view as “unrealistic”. Wishing is giving your power away. It’s like saying “I want to do that, but it’ll never happen.” But what’s REALLY stopping you besides yourself?
“I wish” epitomizes the spectator mentality. The hopelessness of someone that has given their power away. Someone that doesn’t take their life in their own hands. Someone living vicariously through the experiences of others. Do you want to be described like this? I sure as hell don’t. Do you want to merely exist, as a spectator on the sidelines? Or truly live? Let’s take our power back. This calls for a paradigm shift…
Replacing “I wish” with “What can I do to get there?” will create a mentality of empowerment. It will take you from a spectator to an active participant in this game of life. Anything becomes a possibility. Anything becomes achievable.
A lot of people often say things like “I wish I could be in shape like that person.” Change that weak, passive mind state and ask “What can I do to get in that kind of shape?” Get empowered. Free yourself of doubt, self-imposed limitations, and feelings of inferiority. Have the desire to live the life you deserve.
Have a lust for life. Don’t settle for life on the sidelines. If you see something or someone you admire, ask yourself “What do I have to do to get there?” Get hungry! Create a plan and start taking action. You’ll surprise yourself with what you can accomplish.
Live an action-based life. Take your power back. Dare to dream, and have the balls to follow through.
Visualize the action, then actualize the vision.
“I wish” you would 😉
What are you going to replace “I wish” with “What can I do to get there?”
Traveling the world?
Pursuing your passion as a career?
Getting into the best shape of your life?
Being with the girl/guy of dreams?
