In life, you need to have hope to overcome obstacles. It’s easy to focus on problems, negativity and lose hope.
Watch what you say
Words are powerful and can affect how you think and feel. When you say positive words to yourself and others- you feel empowered for success. While, on the other hand, when you speak negative words- you feel like you can’t overcome obstacles.
There are many people who love to go around and talk about how bad it is. I used to be one of those people and have learned that nothing good comes from focusing on negativity.
In the bible in Proverbs 18:21 it states death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words.
In order to have hope, no matter your obstacles- you need to speak hope-filled words. If the words you speak do not align with our goals and dreams- don’t speak them.
What do you think?
Your mind is where success or failure starts. In order to overcome obstacles and have hope, you must develop a positive mindset.
Do not let your circumstances or external forces make you lose hope. It’s important to do the inner work. Work on whatever it is within yourself that you need to change to remain hopeful.
Who are you listening to?
It’s important that you stay aware of who you listen to. If you listen to negative people, it has an affect on you. I know when I speak with a negative person too long, I start to feel drained.
We all have obstacles that we face on a regular basis if not every day. When you listen to a negative person complain it does not make their situation better.
Many people today are problem minded instead of being solution minded. It is better to see problems as obstacles to overcome and grow from it.
Do you have hope? If not, develop a relationship with God and read His word the Bible every day.
