Words have supernatural, life-changing power. They can build up or tear down. They can be used for gossip or encouragement. They can start wars, end conflicts and bring you victory or defeat. Choose your words wisely because the words you speak have the power to shape your destiny!

Too many times in life we’ve had someone tell us “don’t get your hopes up.”
I’m here to tell you the opposite. “Get your hopes up.” Put a smile on your face. You are here on purpose and for a purpose and as long as you’re still living that purposes is yet to be fulfilled.
This means your best moments are still in front of you. Your brightest days are just around the corner.
Hope is not just a wish or something fabricated. To live with hope means you have a genuine and confident expectancy of good in your life.
It also means you that you truly believe your future involves great things, even greater than what you may have experienced in the past.
Leadership expert John Maxwell says: “Hope in the future gives your power in the present.”
Legendary motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said: “Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.”
You see, a person without hope will not take the daily actions necessary to give them the results they desire. Of course, why would you try if you don’t believe it will matter anyway ?
You may have experienced hardships & challenges. We all have.
Someone may have done you wrong. Everyone has been done wrong at some point in their life. But with hope, true genuine hope your past never has to equal your future.
I believe your biggest moments are in front of you. Your best days are still still ahead. Your happiest times are just around the corner.
So yes, get your hopes up. Decide now that you’re going to make this year the greatest, most exciting and purpose-driven year of your life .
If you are experiencing down times it is important that you read inspirational books about overcomers, people who have achieved great things in spite of great challenges and adversities. Listen to motivational audio programs and seek counsel from your coach or mentors. As you conquer each challenging day, you will see daylight again. Eventually you will emerge a stronger, more powerful, and more successful person.
Most people tend to focus on what’s wrong in their world instead of what’s right, on what they don’t have instead of what they do have. Whatever you focus on the longest becomes the strongest. We constantly move in the direction of the things we dwell upon the most. The bottom line is … focus controls your attitude, your actions, your performance, your results and even ultimately … your destiny.
Develop a habit of facing your fears with faith and your doubts with determination. When you face your fears head on you will become stronger, your confidence will grow and eventually your fears will disappear
Seek out the top performers in your particular field. Spend time with them and ask them questions. Get to know how they think and what makes them tick. The reality is this: if you ask the right people the right questions, you will get the right answers.
Of course, follow up and follow through on what you learn, make minor adjustments, keep pressing forward and eventually you will achieve the results you desire.
The only person who controls your future is you. You are blessed with incredible talent and potential. You have fears? We all do. Face your fears with faith and fear will disappear. If someone tells you that you’re not good enough, don’t accept their opinion.
Yes you have problems but problems are part of life. Be more determined than your problems and let your challenges motivate you to become better.. Remember that you are your own person and there’s no limit to how much better you can become. It’s a big world out there waiting on you to emerge and fulfill your destiny.
It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday or the day before or five minutes ago. You can’t change the past. What you can do is change now, change tomorrow, change the next day, change the next month and change the rest of your life.
In the near future new superstars will emerge in your particular game. Some of them may even go on to nationwide fame. The Top Performers will consistently hone their skills, take action and follow through with what they learn. Will you be one of them?
Don’t be a spectator in the game of life. You can surface as a champion. You can live the life of your dreams. It’s truly your choice. It all comes down to a decision, a clear unequivocal decision. You gotta to decide today to do whatever it takes to get off the bench and into the game.
