What Choices Based on Hope Look Like

What Choices Based on Hope Look Like

The Powerful Paragraph

“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” - Nelson Mandela 

How often, when presented with an opportunity, have you balked when considering the risks? You could experience the pain of rejection or worse, be subject to ridicule or criticism. When our inner critic starts to chirp up, it’s easy to reject the opportunities presented to us. Ultimately, however, this can lead to feelings of regret. So, the next time you are presented with an opportunity, challenge yourself to push past your fear and make a choice based on your hopes for your future.

The Powerful Question to Ponder

What would your life look like if your choices were made based on your hopes and not your fears?
