I was laying in bed this morning, staring at the ceiling. My mind was running through all the things I had to get done in the upcoming 24 hours. I was also think about all the things I wish I could be doing instead of what had to get done. I was thinking of all the things I wish I had in that very moment.

We all wish and dream about things we don't have; our dream job, more money in our bank account, that one guy's attention, happiness, love.... the list goes on. What most of us do, though, is stay in that "wish" state. We wish we had this, we wish we could do that. We sit, laying in our bed, wishing we have what we don't.

This is where we go wrong.

We get stuck. Wishing, wanting, dreaming. Did you ever think that the only person stopping you from going after what you want is you?

You are in control of your life. You need to have the mindset and determination to be who you want, do want you want, and get what you want. Your life is in your own hands.... literally.

So, you want that dream job? Take steps, day by day, 24 hours at a time, focussed on that dream. It'll take time, but you'll get there.

You want to get to know that guy in your class? Stop waiting for him and go ask him to dinner.

Do you want to just be happy? Well, my dear, happiness starts with you.

Every goal and dream you may have starts with you. You are in control of your life and your future.

Be confident, be determined, and make those "wishes" your reality. It all starts with you.
