Give people hope

March 23, 2009

I rarely post someone else’s thoughts but today…I loved this one.

It is written by  John C. Maxwell.

A reporter asked Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who led Britain during the dark moments of the Second World War, what was the greatest weapon his country possessed again the Nazi regime of Hitler. Without pausing for a moment, Churchill said, “It was what England’s greatest weapon has always been—hope.”

Hope is one of the most powerful and energizing words in the English language. It is something that gives us power to keep going in the toughest of times. And its power energizes us with excitement and anticipation as we look toward the future.

It’s been said that a person can live forty days without food, four days without water, four minutes without air, but only four seconds without hope. If you want to help people win, then become a purveyor of hope.
