It’s precisely the disappointing stories, which have no proper ending and therefore no proper meaning, which sound true to life.
As a child how often did you hear this warning "Don’t get your hopes up!" What does this say? It says that life is bound to disappoint you. It says; don’t aim high because you’re not likely to get what you want. It says that we can’t expect good things to happen to us.
As you know by now, my philosophy is that our thinking creates our reality, therefore this kind of pre-emptive ‘warning’ of “don’t get your hopes up” dooms us to a mundane existence. It’s time to change our stories. Why not focus the immense power of our hearts and minds on bringing to fruition the very best life has to offer?
Allow yourself to hope and believe in all possibilities, for hope is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles.
To my mind the very least we can do in our life is to figure out what we hope for. And the most we can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it.
