Hope - A Necessity For A Successful Living

By: Keji Giwa

Life - Question It!

If people say you can’t do it? Why and why not?

If people don’t believe in you, as long as you don’t believe them but believe in yourself and your abilities as a person, they'll soon come to believe you and believe in you.

Why?

Because no one can change the real you and if they watch carefully, over time, they will come to see how you increase in worth the more you believe in yourself.

Thomas Edison: Proven record of achievement in experiencing too many failed attempts. His success as an inventor was based on his ability to keep trying despite his many failed attempts. Today you have the light bulb and many other inventions because of his many failed attempts.

Abraham Lincoln: His autobiography is one that had failure written all over it.

If failure was a degree, he would have graduated with a first class. Yet his many failed attempts led him to be the most successful and highly influential president America ever had.

The Wright Brothers: With no college degrees, these two brothers picked up the failed idea of a man who died as a result of implementing his idea and they ran with it. They had too many failed attempts as a result. It was like deliberately taking on the curse of another. Due to their tenacious and resilient attitude towards adversity and complicated issues, they finally succeeded. Today, their success enables you and I to fly all around the world in aeroplanes.

YOU:

You have probably experienced a few or too many failed attempts. You are no different from the people mentioned above and the principle remains the same even with you. Success involves learning from our many failed attempts and using our experiences to keep us from making the same mistake twice. What keeps us going? HOPE. Hope is seeing what isn’t there as if it were there and working towards getting it there.
