Inhale Hope, Exhale Doubt

One common denominator that kept most of the 177 self-made millionaires in my Rich Habit study pushing their ball up their hill, was hope.

Without hope, all desire and motivation is lost. You cannot move forward in life if you feel hopeless.

Hope is a positive emotion. Positive emotions provide emotional energy, the most powerful type of energy humans possess.

When positive emotions exist, you can overcome all obstacles, recover from failure and keep moving towards the realization of your dreams and goals.

Emotional energy dwarfs willpower, as an energy source. Willpower energy only has a two to three hour reservoir, and then it’s gone.

Conversely, emotional energy has an unlimited reservoir. It enables you to put in long hours of focused effort. This is also known as “flow”.

When you are in a state of “flow”, you are able to focus like a laser on one specific thing for many hours, many days, many months and even, many years.

Flow, gets its power from emotional energy. The primary source of emotional energy for entrepreneurs and dreamers is hope.

When hope is alive, your dream will never die.

Find your hope by pursuing something you are truly passionate about; something that makes your heart sing and stirs your emotions.

Hope wakes you up at 5am. Hope keeps you working until 11pm. Hope enables you to overcome every obstacle placed along your path. Hope transforms failures into learning mistakes. Hope overpowers and weakens all doubt.

“Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.” Martin Luther King
