Today is November 11. Yes, that’s 11-11. If you make a wish at 11:11 on November 11, will all of your dreams come true? They could. After all, random, crazy lucky events happen all the time. Then again, maybe not.
Want a hot boyfriend or girlfriend? Crave a million dollars? Wish for the car of your dreams? Maybe it’s something a little less spectacular like passing Algebra I. Whatever it is, I’m sure you have many things you’d like to wish for.
What will make your wishes come true? While it’s a fun practice to make a wish when the clock strikes 11:11 on 11-11, that’s not the best way to achieve your wildest dreams.
The best way to make sure your wishes come true is to actually work to make them happen. I know it’s not nearly as magical, but yes, hard work will help you achieve your dreams.
First, you’ll have to set a goal and never lose sight of it. Want to be a rock star? Then, set that goal and keep it in front of you at all times.
Second, you’ll have to work your butt off to achieve it. The best of the best get there through practice, not fantasizing. So, if all you can do is fantasize about playing in the NBA finals, you won’t be there. If you go out and practice four hours a day, then you still might not make it there. But, your odds sure are better.
Finally, you’ll need to have passion and drive for your goals. If you love what you’re doing and get energized by it, the practice, the setbacks, and the naysayers won’t even matter.
So, it’s November 11. Make a wish. But, work your butt off to achieve it.
