I look at hope as the wheel that drives us through the circumstances of life into an envisioned future. Hope is a future-oriented mindset. It is the will to live, and to fight no matter what it takes. Having hope will protect your mind against defeats and easy surrender.
Hope produces energy, gratefulness, and motivation. Why? Because you know that your life is heading in the right direction, and you know that you’re a life in progress, you’re not done yet.
So, with that mindset, you are inspired to work on your dreams, the hope you have of what you envisioned your life to be, your marriage, or career, or your family to be is what fuels you up day by day to keep working, to keep sowing the good seed waiting and hoping for a good harvest.
It gives us something to look forward to, to hold unto, and to believe in. Where there is no such vision, life is said to be hopeless, uninteresting, and unmotivating and the person will experience despair.
Hope for a Better Future
Having hope gives you the strength to work and to believe that no matter where you are now, no matter how difficult, how many disappointments, rejections, losses, and brokenness you’ve been through, that your future is still very bright, and promising if you don’t lose hope and give up on your dreams.
The fact is that life can deal a heavy hand on some people, which can be very devastating, and overwhelming for the soul. And more so when the victim is not equipped to handle the events maturely.
But it is in the midst of such dark moments of life that hope arises to flash a glimpse of light; to reassure the mind that it is not over yet. In other words, hope restores, reassures, and empowers the mind to stand tall regardless. It assures the mind that something better is possible and that is the horizon.
Why Having Hope Matters
Without hope, life is dull and bitter and dark
Without hope, you won’t have the energy to accomplish anything, which means that getting up from your bed will be so difficult. Unfortunately, that’s the condition of some people these days all over.
Many people today all over the world, are on the verge of losing hope in themselves, losing hope in the family, in the government, church, and all they are seeing around them is nothing but hopelessness. That’s quite a dangerous place to allow one’s mind to dwell.
Oftentimes, it is the depressed minds that have been robbed of hope, that are ready to cause harm to themselves and others. Because to such minds, life is not worth living anymore. Life has gone from being sweet to being bitter, from being hopeful to being hopeless and hateful.
Another reason why hope matters is that it enables you to keep your life productively busy. Because you believe that your situation will improve with time, and that motivates you to take positive action consistently towards receiving what you’re hoping for. https://www.thedailymeditation.com/why-is-hope-important-and-how-to-be-a-hopeful-person
Furthermore, hope will keep your mind steady, by freeing you from fear, frustration and anxiety, and the ultimate depression. Having hope is crucial to everybody regardless of the demographics.
Also, hope allows you not to fall into evil schemes that can double your pains. Because when you are hopeful of a better outcome, or a better future, it will encourage you to also have patience. You will persevere and that will prevent you from taking wrong turns. For instance, so many people who are in a hurry to get rich, are being lured into some dubious means of getting rich quickly, whereby some have ruined their future and lives.
Again, hope helps you to manage your stress level, because you can still count your blessings, and can still smile every day knowing that you’re alive and that as far as there is life there is hope for a better future.
For instance, we all have the need to have a sound mind, that is having mental well-being without which the person will not function well in the society whether white, black, brown, male or female, young or old.
Without any doubt, life can be tough and overwhelming sometimes. But we must resist being overwhelmed by circumstances. We must wear the badge of a hopeful attitude to believe that our tomorrow will come brighter and better than today.
I can’t emphasize the importance of hope enough in this short article. All I can fervently encourage you to do if you feel by any means that you are losing hope in yourself, relationship, job, business, etc., please, do not hesitate to reach out for help!
Do yourself a favor to take the courage to re-route your life. Forget the ego. Do not internalize the negative feelings, speak up and spill them out, before their root get deeper in your mind to begin to affect your overall mental wellbeing.
Hope in Something Bigger Than You
Just as it is impossible for believers in God to please God without faith, so it is with hope. It will be difficult for a person to live a life of victory, or make progress, overcome obstacles without having a hopeful mindset.
Hope is a virtue we all need to treasure because it will carry you across the finished line. It will help you to know that every problem of life has an expiration time if you hold exercise patience. How to Keep a Positive Attitude and Confession Regardless of The Situation
For me, it is my belief in God that has carried me through the darkest moments of my life. The confidence I have in authority over my life, that I’m loved and cared for no matter what I experience outwardly, gives me the strength to continue believing that I can overcome whatever obstacles or challenges I face.
Hope Carries You Through the Dark Times
Anyone’s weeping may endure for a night, but the joy will surely come in the morning! And to receive the joy you got to have the belief that things are about to change, and then hold on to the vision no matter how long it takes manifest.
Hope is like having a flashlight when in a dark place. It will introduce the light to your path to prevent you from falling or losing your vision.
Therefore, in conclusion, I want to encourage you to remain hopeful. Keep believing, keep working hard, keep sowing the good seeds in others, by being kind, keep smiling and cheering up in the midst of the difficulties, and keep being grateful for what you have, and who you are.
Above all keep trusting in the higher power for our protection and blessings, confess and believe that your tomorrow will be greater than your today and so shall it be for you!
