Aaahhh. Well, let me try and see. Such are the words of people with no Hope. Those people don’t believe in themselves too. In the world of success and failure, you need certain qualities to determine your fate. One of those qualities is hope. Hope is one of the pillars of imagination, it is a friend to the intellect and a brother to the soul.

People who haven’t got the feel of hope haven’t try anything new in their lives before. Anything you do, you need hope. There are certain things that needs only hope to complete. Those things happen to be the steps towards our progress. The most difficult task in our lives are normally dealt with hope. Sometimes, it is the only weapon you will need.

Circumstances are the very things we’ve been looking at in our progress in life. One will assess his financial status before he tries something huge in life. In several occasions, people get locked with where they are and where they are coming from. With hope, such situations are made void.

Vicent Peale gives his submissions by starting with:

“Never take defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory”

Indeed, those words are very necessary. Gather momentum and go forward again. You only need life and you have it. Believe in yourself, have faith, because with hope, there shall surely be victory.

Never accept that you are poor, never accept that you are a failure, never accept that you aren’t capable, never accept that you can’t. Bad words are used for bad people and animals are not even bad. So why then do you admit all absurdities to yourself? You can do it. Just try and see.

He continues:

“Practise Hope. As hopefulness becomes habit, you can achieve a permanently happy spirit”

Hope doesn’t come by itself, we develop it. Constant practising of hope makes a positive development. That is how we build self-confidence and trust. Gradually, you will see yourself being capable of handling any difficulty which comes along the way. In any task, you must feel happiness to do it better, that happiness is from hope.

Without hope, there will be no happiness in doing anything. Hope is the key to happiness. When a man sees his children, he feels so happy because in them lies his hope for the future. When you are going to school, sometimes you feel proud and happy because in it lies the hope of your future.

When there is no hope, there is no happiness, when there is no happiness, there is no future. Develop and practise the habit of hope because in it, lies your happiness and future.

He continues to say:

“If you want to get somewhere, you have to know where you want to go and how to get there. Then never, never, never, give up”

Because there is hope.

He continues.

“In every difficult situation is potential value. Believe this then begin looking for it”

First have the feeling that you can do it. Secondly, don’t underestimate your capabilities. Finally, be happy that you’ve encountered hard moment and that your success has already come. The difficult situations in life are the house of the most valuable things. Failing to pass them means loosing valuable asserts.

Always believe that there is something better behind a particular obstacle. Dare yourself to look for it.

Vicent Peale continues to say:

“When a problem comes along, study it until you are completely knowledgeable. Then find that weak spot, break the problem apart and the rest will be easy”

Never lose hope when problem comes. Be vigilant and study it. You will surely find the weak spot. Many are those who give up when huge problems appear in their lives.

At any point in time, there is hope. You can break any problem into pieces if only you are ready to revitalise your life for the next step.

He continues:

“Live your life and forget your age”

Life with hope doesn’t care about age. Age is indeed, just a number. If you really know what you are doing, you won’t be giving reasons about age. All you have to do is to believe that you can. Have the hope that no matter the level or how old you are you will get there.

He comes to say again:

“Empty pocket never held anyone back. Only empty head and heart can do that”

Empty heads are those without thoughts and ideas. Empty hearts are those who feels no passion to do anything. You associate yourself with such people at your own risk and peril.

To them, there is nothing to hope for.

He continues:

“it’s always too soon to quit”

Believe that you can do it. Try again, again and again. You will surely come out with flying colours.


“Our happiness depends on the mind we cultivate. So practise happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit and life will become a continual feast”


“Life’s blows cannot break a person whose spirit is warmed at the fire of enthusiasm”

There is hope for the future.
