The Six W’s: Work will win when wishing won’t. — Todd Blackledge
(Todd Blackledge is a former AFL football quarterback.)
A great movie of 2009 was a Disney movie. It was so different than the lesson Disney has ingrained in our head on wishing:
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
I’m sorry. But this is a bunch of, and I borrow the phrase and intonation of that phrase from a friend, some BULL S#!$!!!
Seriously! Sorry, Walt, but it is… and that’s when “The Princess and the Frog” squashes that initial ‘thought process’ into the ground. THANK GOODNESS!
“The Princess and the Frog” definitely starts off with wishes upon a star. But the movie also drives deep into the honest and goodness truth about ‘wishing for your heart’s desires’. You can’t just wish – you have to take action.
All those ‘princesses’ out there who are wishing for something: their Prince Charming, or their Restaurant, whatever it is, aren’t going to get much just by wishing upon a star. They need to take action.
It’s unfortunate that so many people out there still believe in wishing upon a star and so little people actually take action to make their heart’s desires come true.
Why is this?
If you are still wishing upon stars, its time to grow up and stop wishing. Do you have heart’s desires? If so, stop wishing and start doing!
Always remember both the theme that surrounds “The Princess and the Frog” along with great motivational sports quotes like Todd Blackledge’s Six W’s when you catch yourself wishing…
Work Will Win
When Wishing Won’t
Believe it or not – you can have what you wish for.
