When you're a kid, people often tell that wishes come true. That's going to be a big let down when you get older. This is obviously because wishing for something and hoping for it to happen is like waiting for elephants to fly or waiting for gold to fall out of the sky. You're going to have to do more than that. That's what I feel when I listen to the song "Wishing And Hoping" Dusty Springfield.
I know this is a love song but hey February is just around the corner and that means Valentine's Day or Christmas of the Heart. Anyway just like love, nothing is going to happen when you just wish for it. You've got to do more. You know what you have to do and do it right. Being shy is not going to help and that means you have to go for it, especially if you have the means to do so. Only then that you can achieve it.
That's what I've been trying to do all this time. It's easier said than done when reality dawns on you. Still, if you really want to succeed, you can't let that stop you. It's only through hard work and perseverance that you can succeed. Just wishing is not going to get you anywhere.
