There's an great Irish Proverb. It goes like this. "Pray for potatoes with a hoe in your hand."
Wishing. Hoping. Believing. Praying. It's all powerful stuff; but your chances of realizing great success are vastly greater if you do all that praying while you're working in the field.
You get what I'm saying, right?
Do the work. Let your work be your prayer.
"Do the Work" by Steven Pressfield is one of the most powerful books I've read about doing the work, overcoming resistance and getting the heck out of your own way. If you're serious about getting where you're going, I'd highly recommend the investment.
