Wanting something without working for it is just wishful thinking. That’s not great for entrepreneurs and hustlers. The people that want greatness usually realize that they have to work for it. Everybody wants all the success but it’s not that easy. We grind and hustle for those things.
But sometimes we do find ourselves wishing. We’re not working, hustling, or dedicating ourselves. We’re just wishing and hoping for a miracle. And that’s the best we can do in some situations. Some things are completely out of our control. All we can do is wish. But if we could only have one wish granted, what would you wish for?
Here’s what I would wish for and my thoughts on it.
There’s so many things that could be wished for in this life. I would love to have a three story mansion out in the middle of nowhere. I’d love to have a suite of supercars to drive around like a rockstar. I’d love to travel to all the top tourist destinations in the world. That would all change my life in a huge way.
Many people agree that money, power, and sex are important. And most of us would choose to get a wish granted that affects these things. The only other major thing to wish for is health. We all want great health over our years.
That was a big one for me too. I’ve been unhealthy almost my whole life. I’ve been challenged with some major health problems. They’ve affected my whole life in various ways. I can’t play sports or overwork myself. So naturally I imagine getting a wish granted to live a healthy life.
But after much thought I realized that’s not the one. Those are all great wishes that would positively impact my life. But it’s not who I am. The wish I would truly want granted is simple. I would love to truly understand other people. It sounds super simple I know.
But I would prefer to work for the things I get in life. I love getting gifts but working for our goals is so much more satisfying. A wish granted would have to be something that’s out of my control. Something like reversing a genetic disease I was born with. Or even better, giving me the ability to understand other humans much better.
We’re all in this life together. But we can try and understand others’ point of view. It sucks sometimes because there can be a big disconnect. It would be a blessing being able to truly understand my fellow humans and their unique points of view. That’s the one wish I would want granted! How about you?
