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 .
