What will you wish for?
Wishes can reveal the nature of an individual, and interestingly act as connections between human beings, with similar wishes bringing people together. It would be no exaggeration to affirm that every endeavour kick-starts with a wish. Human beings are born with an innate aptitude to create what they want. What is required is the understanding of how to "turn on" this ability. We all wish for something, but do we wish for the right thing. Wishing plays a pivotal role in hope, resilience, purpose, love, goal setting and more... It's not always possible to guess the cause of happiness or the reason behind a particular demand. As a result, people often land up wishing for the “wrong” things.
Wishes are significant in human life; they may be defined as a hope, dream or love for something. Their presence felt from folklore to literature. While fiction is about supernatural wishes, sometimes entire tales revolve around wishes. Classically, the wish provider is a Genie, or spirit, after all who can ever forget the Aladdin's oil lamp, or a container closed with Solomon's seal. Some cultures encourage people to "make a wish," such wishing upon a shooting star at night, tossing a coin into a well, or blowing out the candles on a birthday cake. When times are tough, they offer us the much-needed comfort, giving us a hint of hope and luck.
While good physical and mental health is desired by one and all, fame and money are what many crave for. Desire for world peace and a more civilized world are the wishes of all the good-hearted souls. With dreadful news of attacks, wars, murders, and economic slowdown flooding the news columns – good news is eagerly wished for. Love is perhaps the most wished, irrespective of the language they speak, or where they live, or how much they earn. People crave for love. Lonely hearts and those who are in love look forward to starting a family. People pray to God for their relationship to work out well. Some make their wishes for good things for their family while some desire to have a sweet family of their own. Orphans hope for the kind adopted parents and to become part of a loving family. Married couples make their wishes to extend their families by having children or adopting them.
Wish of the Month
Good Luck Wish
Who does not want good luck? Most
people pray to God for good marks in exams, a life partner, to make them rich
overnight and what not! However, luck is so notorious that though at times it
acts in favour, there are times when it ditches too. We wish each other luck
before beginning something important or when we go for an exam or a business
meeting. After all, we all wish to be blessed with prosperity. There are many who make regular visits to
fortune-tellers to know if luck will favour them in the future. There are also
certain objects that we consider to be lucky. This differs from culture to
culture – from hanging horseshoes at the front door of a house, to putting
coins under doorsteps to bring financial gains in the family. Four-leaf
clovers, rabbit's foot and fortune frogs are some of the common symbols of good
luck that are found in Western and Asian cultures.
Love is All That Matters
If you wish for love, then you are not alone. Love is wished for by most people, no matter what language they speak, or where they live, or how much they earn. Love knows no boundaries of age, location or gender, in fact, philosophers around the world equal Love with God! When you wish for love, it is as if you wish for God. No one feels complete in life unless they are loved by someone or have someone to love. There is perhaps no other thing in this world that can make anyone as happy as love does. Some keep their love a secret while others confess it to the world. Whether you want your ex back in your life or wish for someone special to fall in love with you head over heels, do not confine your wishes to yourself. The moment you write it down, you’ll feel more confident, and your wishes will come true.
Wish for Money
A small wish on a dandelion fluff “I hope I become a millionaire someday.” Those who have money, they wish for more and those who do not, clamour for some. Most people can benefit from having more of money in their lives. Actually, it all begins with a simple thinking – or at least, that is what studies on people who are wealthy reveal. It has been found that people who have learnt to think about money differently are the ones who manage to make it big, albeit financially. There are some concrete reasons just below the perspective of our consciousness. These if left unchanged, persist to ambush our every attempt in making our wish come true. Physical tangible wealth begins from a wish. With time, this wish grows into clarity and feeling until it can be turned into reality. To describe in brief, all human beings have the innate inborn aptitude to create what they want. What we only require is to understand how to "turn," this ability “on" undoubtedly, wishing is a significant part in this process.
Wish to Become Famous
Fame is what many crave for but only a handful succeeds in accomplishing it. Those who are lucky become famous, while others fade out with the wish to become well-known. While some desire to rule millions of hearts with their acting skills, many wish to be a famous athlete someday. While some foster the dream of ruling the nation, few aspire to become millionaires. Often, when nobody was noticing, you may have thrown pennies into the wishing well to make your wish come true. However, in reality, it is the strenuous training, experience, and persistence that are the key ingredients to fame. Setting up of realistic goals and the realization that chances are slim of being the next Miley Cyrus is important to keep you grounded and yet wish for the stars.

to Become Financially Independent
In a world where money shapes your life and dreams, it is extremely important to become financially independent.

You can also sell your unnecessary possessions through eBay, garage sale, etc. It would be possible for you to save money only after clearing your debts.

In Italy, it is commonly said that if you want to make money, then you can inherit it, marry it. However, there are other ways to become rich and that includes working harder and smarter than others. An alternative but easy way to become rich overnight is by winning a lottery or discovering a hidden treasure. Nevertheless, not all of us are lucky in this matter. Some people also wish to find something magical like Aladdin’s lamp that would bring out a genie to fulfil all their wishes, including the wish to live lavishly among riches.
