I saw a rendition of this quote on a sign on a local restaurant recently. I don't, in any way, agree with the owner's politics but, to give him credit, I think the message is a good one.
Wishing without taking action to make the wish a reality accomplishes nothing. We can wish all we want for things to change, for others to change their behavior, for our lives to be different or for business success. Without our own action, all changes will be those desired by others. Yes, some of them will be as we wish but only if that wish is what others desire.
We need to believe in ourselves and our God given abilities and then stand up and take action to make the necessary changes. If we aren't willing to make it happen, we will always be at the mercy of others.
The message is simple. Stand up for what you believe. Take action to make it a reality whether it be reaching your own personal goals or changing the world. None of it happens by breaking the wishbone and getting the bigger piece.
