The Difference Between Wishing and Making It Happen

birds_1719a

At its basic meaning, as a noun, a wish is simply a desire or hope for something to happen.

A wish can remain passive, specially in the context of hoping for something unattainable or unlikely to happen.

But wishing can also be a verb, and it takes on a different meaning, when a strong desire is directed toward a purpose.

“There’s a difference between wishing and doing. You can believe in your dreams, but you have to take action to make them happen.”
– Nick Vujicic

Nick Vujicic was born without arms and legs, and yet he is now a sought-after motivational speaker and bestselling author of several books.

Wishing is good, specially when followed by a choice to take action, even when it is not easy. Sometimes all it takes is to see the world upside down, and what seemed improbable can become attainable, and what was once a wish can become reality.
