Hope Fool

The Free Dictionary defines hope as:
To wish for something with expectation of its fulfillment.
What an absurd way to life life, hoping for something ... wishing for it. Try an experiment to prove out the absurdity. For the rest of today, wish for $100 and see if it materializes for you. If it does, awesome! Start wishing for a $1,000,000,000 and give me 10% for helping you identify this power. If the $100 does not show up, do something active to get it. Don't wish it, go get it. Odds are that if you do something to get it, rather than simply wishing for it, it will happen. Maybe you should cover all bets and do both, go after it and wish for it. Never just wish. Wishes should never be wasted on anything that you can get for yourself. For example, I wish I did not have to sleep. I love life and want to experience every moment handed to me. I don't spend my time wishing our family trip, I am actively doing something to have it.

Study your wishes. They will reveal much about what you believe is in your control and what is not; how bad you really want various things in life; and if you're a driver or passenger in life.

Don't be a Hope Fool, drive your life. Life is to precious to waste and risk on someone else driving.
