Here is a great quote about Commitment from Ty Bennett…
“When you are interested you do what’s convenient, when you are committed you do whatever it takes.”
How committed are you
to making your wish come true?
The video below of Ty Bennett on stage includes his “Russian Train Story” and his pivotal moment where he decided to commit himself.
What is your commitment to follow through
on your decision to build your wish?
“Commitment is following through on a decision after the emotion of the decision has passed.”
Another great commitment-related quote by Ty Bennett and the video below tells his story about following through on his decision to participate in a 100 mile bike trip with his father-in-law. Check it out…

Important note: The video on this page is not a direct endorsement by Tyler Perry of TheWishBuilder process but you will find many similarities between Mr. Perry’s life story, his suggestions in the video and the components of TheWishBuilder process. As you look at your wishlist, remember that the key is to have a single goal, to focus on it with all your heart and never give up on the dream of making your wish come true.
Background on Tyler Perry:
Perry was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, as Emmitt Perry, Jr., the son of Willie Maxine Perry (née Campbell) and Emmitt Perry, Sr., a carpenter. He has three siblings. Perry once said his father’s “answer to everything was to beat it out of you”. As a child, Perry once went so far as to attempt suicide in an effort to escape his father’s beatings. In contrast to his father, his mother took him to church each week, where he sensed a certain refuge and contentment. At age 16, he had his first name legally changed from Emmitt to Tyler in an effort to distance himself from his father.
Many years later, after seeing the film Precious, he was moved to relate for the first time accounts of being molested by a friend’s mother at age 10; he was also molested by three men prior to this, and later learned his own father had molested his friend.
While Perry did not complete high school, he earned a GED. In his early 20s, watching an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, he heard someone describe the sometimes therapeutic effect the act of writing can have, enabling the author to work out his or her own problems. This comment inspired him to apply himself to a career in writing. He soon started writing a series of letters to himself, which became the basis for the musical, I Know I’ve Been Changed.
Around 1990, Perry moved to Atlanta, where two years later I Know I’ve Been Changed was first performed at a community theater, financed by the 22-year-old Perry’s $12,000 life savings. The play included Christian themes of forgiveness, dignity, and self-worth, while addressing issues such as child abuse and dysfunctional families. The musical initially received a “less than stellar” reception and was a financial failure. Perry persisted, and over the next six years he rewrote the musical repeatedly, though lackluster reviews continued. In 1998, at age 28, he succeeded in retooling the play and restaging it in Atlanta, first at the House of Blues, then at the Fox Theatre. Perry continued to create new stage productions, touring with them on the so-called “chitlin’ circuit” (now also known as the “urban theater circuit”) and developing a large, devoted following among African-American audiences. In 2005, Forbes reported that he had sold “more than $100 million in tickets, $30 million in videos of his shows and an estimated $20 million in merchandise”, and “the 300 live shows he produces each year are attended by an average of 35,000 people a week”.

The Wish Builder process works because it leverages 3 important characteristics of successful people: a clear goal, a strong mental focus and massive action … all wrapped up in a simple process.
Of the 3 aspects, goal setting is probably the most commonly used but how many are actually successful with just goal setting? On the other hand, clear mental focus is probably used by less than 5% of the world’s population (according to Earl Nightgale).
If you look around, you will find that very few people actually take massive action toward the achievement of their goals. The ones that do might have beenraised with a strong work ethic but how many have the strong mental focus to go along with it?
The use of the 1000 cranes is how The Wish Builder is able to help you continually focus on your goal while doing the steps necessary to succeed.
Why so many action steps?
If you think of more ways to succeed, the odds of you succeeding goes up. If you take multiple paths to your goal, there are few obstacles that can stand in your way.
How is The Wish Builder
different from a To Do List?
Most “to do” lists don’t have the focus that The Wish Builder does. “Bring in a new client” might be listed right before “pick up milk” or “grab a beer with a friend” on your “to do” list but it is unlikely that they are all pointed toward achieving your primary goal.
How does the folding help the process?
First, learning to fold an origami crane means, for most people, learning a new skill. This creates new neural pathways in your brain while also building dexterity in your hands. The tactile process reinforces the focus on your project while the completed cranes provide physical evidence that you are making progress.
The Wish Builder’s bottom line…
The Wish Builder process succeeds because it helps you work better and smarter. If you don’t work, it won’t work. All 1000 actions and the outcome of your wish are in your hands.
