Hello Guys, it has been a while, and I would like to apologize for my unavoidable absence. Even more, I want to use this medium to wish everyone a Merry Christmas in arias and happy new year in advance.

I believe it is no news to us that life is not a bed of roses, and there is a possibility that we can lose somethings during our journey to success. It is a journey punctuated by a series of ups and downs. It is a war zone.

In my last article “the purpose of the valley” I addressed the fact that we learn different things from valley experience, and one of those things is being hopeful. There is no need pressing on our loss, obstacles, and challenges when we can move on; this is because we can easily get broken.

How do we push on?  Over time I have come to understand that hope is an aspect of self-motivation.

Over time I have come to understand that hope is an aspect of self-motivation. According to Samuel Smiles, hope is like the sun, which as we journey towards it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. I believe hope redefines what is possible and opens the paths to the impossible. It is the precursor of faith. Hope motivates us to cope with the sufferings and challenges of the present. It gives us something to look forward to. It keeps us going through hard and rough times.

Hope makes us optimistic. It assures us of a better and fruitful tomorrow. Hope works hand in hand with positivity. It is an encouraging force that stands in the face of negativity; it creates an aura around you that keeps you away from negativity. Hope can sustain life when you are feeling down or threatened by challenges. It is the sliver of light that shines at the end of a tunnel.

Hope is an essentiality in every man’s life and according to Desmond Tutu “hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. So, I encourage every one of us to embrace hope as a part of life as we enter into the new year.
