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.
Fear is the greatest enemy of success. Fear conditions us to lose confidence, give up on our dreams and live a life of distraction rather than satisfaction.
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
If you were to ask me what I believe is the single most important success principle that has helped me throughout my career, my answer would be, “I am coachable.”
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.
Believe in yourself!
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.
We all have the power to choose each and every day whether we will build others up or tear them down; whether we will gossip, gripe and complain, or work to build a strong and powerful team. It takes careful thought and planning to support and build your team and teammates. It takes very little time to destroy. If more people focused on helping others find success, we would have a lot more successful people in the world and it would be a much better place to live.
Remember that success in business, sales and life is mostly a mental game. Your thoughts will drive your results, your success and even your destiny. So proactively focus on the positive, defend your mind against the negative, and expect victory. You have the power to choose your thoughts and your attitude, and therefore your success.
