A picnic lunch does not magically transform inside the picnic basket. You eat the lunch you pack. ~Hilarion

Many of us dream of the future and then are disappointed at the way our lives turn out. We have high hopes, yet somehow life doesn't seem to deliver what we want. How is it that our hopes and wishes seem to degrade into more of life as usual? What is going wrong?
Here’s the rub: Nothing is going wrong. Our thoughts and actions simply aren't in line with our dreams and desires. We have ordered up a gourmet life meal and only are willing to invest fast food beliefs and effort.
Life dishes up events to us based on our beliefs and resultant thoughts. Our thoughts drive our actions, so we experience what we believe to be true. The issue isn't that our dreams are too big; the issue is that our imagination and willingness are too small.
Let’s imagine we want to go on a special picnic with amazing food. If we want to have an overall wonderful experience, we’ll choose a picnic basket with care. We’ll equip it with colorful plates, napkins, and silverware. We’ll select delicious sparkling beverages and plan our menu with care—piquant appetizers, a salad or two, a savory main course, fresh fruit, and of course, desserts. We’ll be thoughtful and selective about what we pack in the picnic basket, to maximize our enjoyment.
Now let’s imagine we haphazardly toss a couple of bottles of water in a dented cooler and along with some plastic tableware and a few paper towels. We’ll add a couple of quick sandwiches made with whatever we have in the refrigerator—peanut butter and jelly is likely—and toss in an old candy bar or partial bag of chips for good measure. The lunch will fill us up, but it won’t generate much excitement.
The point is that we experience life commensurate with our investment into it. When we mindfully build our existence through selective thoughts and actions, we ensure our life banquet is consistent with our dreams. When we stumble through each day randomly reacting to events, we end up eating life’s leftovers.
That’s not to say most events in our lives should be pre-planned. That level of control is impossible and certainly undesirable. It would leach all the magic and joy of surprise out of existence. However, we can impart an overall theme to our lives by harmonizing our beliefs, thoughts, and actions. This will ensure we don’t send mixed messages about what we enjoy to the universe.
