It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan. (Eleanor Roosevelt, former First Lady and political activist)
Novelist Lev Grossman wrote, “If there’s a single lesson that life teaches us, it’s that wishing doesn’t make it so.” Roosevelt’s statement, then, emphasizes the waste of energy that wishing is. If wishing is all you do, you’ll never see your dreams come true. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Work hard to fulfill your dreams.
Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity. (Proverbs 21:5)
