Wish hard. Dream Big. Make it happen. (Doe Zantamata, author and artist)

“I wish I could run in the Olympics.” “I dream about winning a Pulitzer Prize.” Such wishes and dreams may be worthy ambitions, but they will never be achieved just by wishing and dreaming. Zantamata seems to encourage hopeful expectations, but she adds the key that might unlock the door to success. Making something happen includes planning and hoping but is largely achieved by working hard.

No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. (Hebrews 12:11)
