Quick Thought 12-1-2014

“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.”, Michael Jordan

What can I say? This quote needs no explaining, and yet it’s an awesome and powerful reminder. We can so easily fall into the trap of wishing for success, hoping the world will change, and believing the lie that we are powerless to do anything about it. Countless quick thoughts have touched on this very subject – the fact that we are all worthy, beautiful, and powerful individuals with the power to make a difference and the right to pursue our dreams. Nobody can do this for us. It’s up to each one of us to decide we’re not going to sit back any longer as spectators. Affecting change is not always easy, it’s hardly ever quick, and it often comes with numerous failures along the way. Yet it can come eventually, and when it does, that’s when the world gets better. That’s when incredible things happen. The important thing is to enjoy every step of the journey while focusing on the destination, and to accept the value of progress however small and slow it might be.

So, let us dream and dream big, and let us remember that we can be the people who make things happen. We can make a difference in the world. We can have what we desire, and we can change lives. Have a wonderful week.:)

    The “Quick Thought” reminds me of (I believe it is a Chinese proverb) which says something like a journey begins with the first step! Obviously, it is important to take that step.
