meanings to you?
As you read through this article, imagine within yourself
what Hope stands for!!!!
To Me; Hope is more than a figure of speech: it’s the little
voice that urges us to keep going when times are tough. It’s the belief and
assurance that things will get better.
I found out that Hope is the elevating feeling we experience
when we see in the mind’s eye a path to a better future. Hope acknowledges the
significant obstacles and deep pitfalls along that path. True hope has no room
The Important of Being
A sense of hope is important to our inner well-being. On the
one hand, good memories and present joys lose their pleasure if we have a sense
that they will soon end and not be repeated. On the other hand, we can endure
present unpleasantness and difficulty if we have a sense that things will be
better tomorrow. Hope lifts our spirits and motivates us.
"You may not always have a comfortable life and you
will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't
ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us
that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own." Michelle Obama
It’s a simple fact of life that even the best laid plans can
go astray. Whatever talent or skills you may possess, hope is the state of mind
that helps you navigate life’s twists and turns, and keeps you moving forward
when times are tough.
It has been said that “Hope isn’t a strategy.” But, having a
HOPEFUL and CONFIDENT OUTLOOK will help you enjoy a happy life and a successful
"I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the
brightest. I do not judge the universe." Dalai Lama
Where does hope come from in the midst of this doom and
gloom? Sometimes we create false hope. We tell ourselves that things are not as
they could be, that we will surely be better tomorrow or that we can make
things better by ourselves. False hope collapses when tomorrow is just as bad
as today or when we cannot solve our own problems.
According to psychologist Charles Richard “Rick” Snyder
(1944-2006), hopeful thinkers achieve more, and are physically and
psychologically healthier than less hopeful people.
"Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are
something to do, something to love, and something to hope for." Joseph Addison
Snyder characterized hopeful thinkers as people who are able
to establish clear goals, imagine multiple workable pathways toward those
goals, and persevere, even when obstacles get in their way.
Hope is directly related to our sense of possibility. The
greater our perception is about achieving possibilities, the greater our hope. The
most constricted view of possibility, of course, is hopelessness or despair.
Hoping and Optimism
Hope is one of our central emotions, but we are often at a
loss when asked to define it. Many of us confuse hope with optimism, a
prevailing attitude that things will turn out for the best. But hope differs
from optimism. Hope does not arise from being told to think positively, or from
hearing an overly rosy forecast. Hope, unlike optimism, is rooted in unalloyed
reality. Although there is no uniform definition of hope.
Hope is a suitable desire that is attainable in the future,
and therefore because of its possibility is based on reality. So hope is a
mental phenomenon such that the more it is based on reality and truth the most suitable and efficient it is.
A wish to the contrary, refers to something, which is
unobtainable, and there is no hope or indication that it may happen in the
future. A wish is expressed through phrases such as: “I wish it was”, “I wish
something like that happens”
Therefore, human beings with far reaching wishes are forced
to waste his mental energy in formulating reasons, reforming what he perceives
as reality, and eliminating illogical selections of the truth. In this
expression wishing is a kind of want that is unobtainable. So it might become
the source of negative effects in the future and shortcomings in duties related
to the present.
