Tomorrow, when you check the clock and see it’s time to ask the universe for your wish, close your eyes and think.
Think about how big your wish is and how big this world is. Think about what you owe the world and what the world owes you. Then think about your wish and what you’re willing to do for that wish to come true, and be ready to work as hard as you can for that wonderful desire to come alive.
Think about all the things YOU can do to make it happen, think about all the little things you can do.
Take a breath, concentrate on your wish, and wish for a chance to make it happen.
