Many years go, when we were in high school, a friend of mine (let’s call him “RT”), during a sickening conversation about road accidents, in a sadistic manner joked that he wished he could someday witness one and see bones getting crushed and blood spilt everywhere – something like in a gory horror movie. He was always an extremely sweet and gentle fella, and I know he did not mean it for one second.
But the “gods of wishes” were obviously listening.
Many years later, when we were young adults, his mother died in a freakish road accident – she was riding a two-wheeler (very common mode of transporation in India), and a piece of her clothing got caught in the wheels, and she fell under a fast-moving bus.
Call this coincidence, but I think there is a very fine line between “Coincidence” and the power of “Intention”.
Be careful what you wish for. It just might come true.
Stop thinking bad thoughts, and think about making great things happen, and changing the lives of people around you. If you really intend it, it will happen – in all probability.
- The terrorists of 9/11 intended it to happen.
- Bill Gates intended the “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” to happen.
- Oprah intended to be one of the most influential people in America today.
- Mother Theresa intended for the world to be a better place.
What is your intention in life?
Wish. Intend. Will. Act. Persevere. Win.
May RT’s mother rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are always with RT his dad – one of the kindest, sweetest gentlemen I’ve ever known. God bless the family.
