Hope is a Four letter word

Charles Sawyer has a wonderful quote today, “Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so indispensable, none so powerful, as hope. Without hope men are only half alive. With hope they dream and think and work.”


Hope – a four letter word and one filled with power – of course all words have power – or I wouldn’t be such a word watcher for my coaching clients –


However I hear the word hope used poorly often enough to bring it up – so today – check in with your heart. Is it filled with hope, dreams and aspirations?


Or is there fear clouding out things you want and hope and desire for?


“I hope I’m good enough.” Is a statement filled with fear.


“I hope I’ll win the gold medal!” Is one filled with excitement and expectation.


The words we use have power – I’m hopeful you’ll use them to fuel your passions.


You create your day by the way you think! Make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
