Hope is not a Plan

Maybe it’s a novel, nonfiction, or a movie, as the story develops toward the end, someone says: “You know what’s important in the long run? I’ll tell you, it’s hope.”

Ouch, it’s like nails scratching along a blackboard. Hope is so ingrained in our language that it’s used mindlessly by nearly everyone. I say mindlessly because hope has no value, and it puts the hope abuser in a state of victimhood. I wish is a close cousin to I hope.

Napoleon Hill also observed the importance of words: Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire that transcends everything.

So, try this on for size and see how powerful you become. Instead of I hope, say I trust.
