Power Up Passages

Got Hope?

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©




August 4, 2008.

"Great hopes make great men."
Thomas Fuller

The dictionary defines hope as 'a feeling that what is wanted will happen.' And while that definition is not bad, hope is so much more than just a feeling.

Hope is a stirring sensation that fills our souls with excitement, expectation and anticipation. Hope is an inspiring, uplifting emotion that keeps us going in the face of life's most demanding challenges. Hope is a glorious breath of fresh air that helps us keep the faith when everyone around us is ready to give up.

Hope is the breeze at our backs; the wind in our sails. Hopes moves, drives and motivates us. It puts a hop in our steps and joy in our hearts. Hope is everything.

Without it, we are lost.

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do."
Pope John XXIII

Hope provides a shining beacon of light in our lives, allowing us to see the best life has to offer. And hope sings to our hearts, filling us with optimism and gladness. Where there's hope, there are possibilities. And these possibilities, when acted upon, can drive us to unimagined heights.

Nothing great is ever accomplished without great hope.

Hope is a driving force in our lives, giving us a reason to believe. With hope, there's nothing we cannot do, nothing we cannot achieve. Yet, without hope, there is very little we can accomplish. The moment we stop believing that we have what it takes to make something happen, we stop happening ourselves. And when that occurs, our hopes and dreams fade away.

When we stop believing, we stop achieving.

"To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it."
Mother Teresa

Too many folks sadly go through life beaten, broken and defeated. Instead of keeping their hopes alive, they end up a mere shadow of what they could have and should have been. Entangled in an inextricable maze of doom and gloom, their lives seem empty, lonely and hopeless. And their once promising hopes and dreams forever lost.

Maybe you feel like you're running out of hope. Maybe it even feels like you have lost hope altogether. But take heart; it's still there. That's right; regardless of what you have gone through or how badly things have been, you still have hope. And hope has you.

"Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future."
Robert Schuller

Maybe only a flicker of hope still remains, but it is still there. Maybe not burning as brightly as it once did, but it's still in you. And that small glimmer of hope is all you really need to turn your life around. You need to grab that smoldering trace of hope and fan it into a full-fledged flame.

You need to approach each day with the highest of high hopes, expecting the very best from life. But hoping alone won't do. You need to add some hustle and muscle to the mix and consistently give life all that you've got to give. When you do, something truly amazing, something beyond your wildest imagination happens.

All of your hopes and dreams start coming true.

The Bottom Line: Keep your spirits up, keep your hopes high and keep working at making your life all it can be - and more.
