Most people understand hope as wishful thinking, as in “I hope something will happen.” But that is a watered down version of what hope really is. Hope is the “the happy and confident anticipation of good.” When we embrace hope on purpose, it influences our thoughts, our attitudes, our outlook and the way we speak. When you have hope, you speak with authority.
Words are not simply sounds caused by air passing through your larynx. Words have real power. Words can do more than convey information; they can translate a desire into a physical reality. The power of our words can actually restore a broken spirit. I’ve personally witnessed the positive power of hope on the 3-Day, at every event! Like tools, our words can be used to help us reach our goals because the words we speak are actually the overflow of our hearts. And the hearts of our 3-Day family are full of compassion, love and determination.
Hope is not a wait-and-see attitude but an action we must choose to take on purpose each day. It’s the sometimes unexplainable, but always undeniable feeling that today would be a bad day to give up. Never assume that where you’ve been or where you are is as good as it gets. Hope believes boldly, decides daringly, speaks firmly and perseveres passionately. So LIVE with hope and encourage others to “Do Something Huge” and join us on our 3-Day journey. We will NEVER give up!
