“Wishing is a form of inspiration for the lazy mind but taking Action, Persisting and finding alternative routes to your destination against all odds is the definition of a SUCCESSFUL Venture.”
It is rare that I reuse quotes intentionally but this one really resonated with my as I reflected on the quote yesterday about removing “try” from my vocabulary. I think the word “wish” can fall into the same category as the word “try” if one isn’t careful. It can be an excuse if left on its own without the effort, energy and tenacity needed to turn something into action. If you combine “wish” and “try” in the same sentence you are almost guaranteed failure.
For another perspective on this quote here are the thoughts it prompted the last time I selected it.
