Realist

19 Aug

I got this email delivered to my inbox, this morning…

It’s funny, because its almost like a follow up of Mondays post.

This came from Wes  Hopper

“The pessimist complains about the wind;
the optimist expects it to change;
the realist adjusts the sails.”
William Arthur Ward

You’ve heard me say many times that we
should always see the good, look for the
good and expect the good in everything.

And we should. But is that all?

I don’t think so! But some people have
gotten that impression from some of the
pop “create your reality” stuff going
around.

You know, “I’ll just sit here and think good
thoughts and everything will turn out OK.”

Good luck with that. This is exactly where
a lot of otherwise well informed people
screw up – by failing to combine thought
with action!

But let’s say you’re holding your vision
and taking action and getting nowhere.
Should you expect the wind to change
or should you adjust the sails?

Persistence is good, but working harder
on something that is not working is not
good. This is where you gotta open up
to new ideas.

Your mind is very creative and the Universe
is full of good ideas. Look, seek, ask and
expect. Be willing to try something unusual,
something different, maybe something
scary. Borrow something from a totally
unrelated field.

Effective action adjusts the sails and
creates miracles!

Blessings,
Wes
