“Would you give me a chance?” God replies. “Could you at least buy a ticket?”
I love this joke, largely because it is often so true. How often do we see others (or ourselves) engage in wishing for a certain outcome without taking the steps necessary for it to come to fruition?
- We want a new job, but we don’t apply to opportunities.
- We want to lose weight, but we don’t go to the gym.
- We want to start a business, but we don’t tell people we are in business.
- We want to meet someone, but we don’t go on dates.
I think there are two parts to avoiding this trap. The first is belief that the outcome will happen and the second is engaging actively in making it happen. I’d like to discuss these in reverse order.
