Wishing Doesn't Work

"'I wish' is code for 'I don't want to do anything differently'." – @jayshetty Change comes from building a plan, writing it down, and taking deliberate steps to make changes.

Everyone has said at one point in their lives "I wish I could...". There's something wrong in their lives (at least according to themselves) and there's a desire for that to not be the case.

I wish I was 10 pounds lighter.

I wish I could run a marathon.

I wish that I made more money.

Stating the wish on its own isn't going to get you there. Wishing, while it might be useful for figuring out where you might want to go in life, doesn't do anything to move you forward.

"I wish" is code for "I don't want to do anything differently".

Change comes from building a plan, writing it down, and taking deliberate steps to make changes. You might not get the exact results you're hoping for, but you can at least say that you built a process to get you there (more on that later).
