The Importance Of Having Hope

Today I want to emphasise the importance of having hope. History provides us with the inspirational stories of many a man and woman who have overcome huge obstacles and difficult circumstances, going against the odds to attain a noteworthy achievement. They would each say they never stopped believing or having hope.

Sometimes life can seem nothing more than a struggle. Even the greatest lives are full of hardship and difficulty.

It seems that struggle is inevitable, every one of us will experience it at some stage. In the process, one can easily lose hope. Despair is often not far away, and can easily spiral into depression and helplessness, leading to even greater despair. The result is that things spiral out of control, and everything just gets worse. But it doesn’t have to be like that. Hope provides us with a power, that comes deep from within, that will constantly pull us to our feet no matter how many times we get knocked down.

No matter how impossible your dream may seem to be, you must continue to hope and believe in what’s possible. Hope is one of the most precious beliefs we have. Hope instils within us the drive to continue on, press forward, and live despite any circumstances. Hope is what motivates us and keeps us going through the hard times.

There is no person alive that isn’t filled with dreams, goals and ideals. These things are a part of life and human nature. The definition of a dream is ‘hope’; an inspiration; an aim. Every human being dreams. As long as you remember to dream, and imagine having the life you want, enjoying success and happiness, then this hope will protect you no matter what troubles you will experience on your life’s journey. It’s when you give up hope that life goes nowhere.

People often struggle to hope for a better tomorrow because they don’t know what it might look like. Before you can have hope it might be necessary to first figure out what type of life you imagine as the most desirable.

Today, take time to consider your ideal life and what it would include. Ask yourself:

“If I could wake up tomorrow and have any life, what would it be like?”

Now imagine as many details as possible. Create a vision for the life you wish to live.

As humans, we need hope. We can’t live without it. It is the lifeblood to our survival, and the only thing that pulls us out from our problems and struggles.
