I am an advocate for maintaining a positive attitude, for keeping our thoughts positive, but they are preparatory steps. Nothing happens unless you get busy and work. There is no substitute for daily practice, training, working, followed by a detailed study and analysis of your performance. A good night’s sleep, then you repeat the process.

You won’t sink a free throw until you chuck a basketball at the hoop. A hole-in-one isn’t materializing until you pick up a driver and whack a golf ball. Your world’s greatest novel won’t appear on Amazon until you open a notebook and put words on a blank page. Magical thinking might work in our stories, but our physical world’s constraints hindered us. In this sphere, magic happens when we spend blood, sweat, and tears practicing.

How will you reach your goal?

  1. I’m sorry to say that I like your glass half empty quote. It resonates with me. And I agree with your tacit assertion that success is achieved through hard work. Although I do believe there is magic at work in the universe and it seems to pop up just when I need it most.
