Quote-A-Day: Day 301

Why #wish for something when YOU can make it happen? #QuoteADay #Day301 #edchat #edu #MakeItHappen #ASCDL2L

Wishing for things is overrated.  Sure, it can feel nice to wish things were different, but in wishing, we take the burden off our own shoulders and put it on someone else’s.

And, when these things don’t happen, we tend to get just as upset (if not more so) than if we were actively in control of the situation.

Since wishing removes us from the locus of control and makes us dependent solely on the actions of others, it stands to reason that we should spend less time wishing and more time making things happen.

The more time we are actively trying to make a difference, the more difference we can make.

And in the long run, isn’t that the most important thing?

So, let’s stop wishing, and let’s start doing.  After all, we can accomplish all that we’ve wished for by simply putting the onus on us, and getting stuff done.
