There is no wishful thinking. You wake up and you figure out how to get closer to the goal. You put a definite plan into action and do the best you can with what you have. Anything else is all talk. Be sure to self-assess.
Are you a better version of of yourself now, as opposed to 365 days ago? What’s holding you back? What’s propelling you forward? What will grant you the best possible outcome? What’s the worst that can happen?
Now go make history.
