  4. 4. 8. Hope elevates “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

  6. 6. 6. Hope is fearless “Every great batter works on the theory that the pitcher is more afraid of him than he is of the pitcher.” - Ty Cobb (1886 – 1961)  Has a career batting average of .367.  Won 12 batting titles, including 9 in a row from 1907 thru 1915. P.S. Almost any major league baseball player with a lifetime batting average around .300 makes it to the Hall of Fame. That means they fail 2/3 of the time. Are you still swingin’ your bat?
  7. 7. 5. Hope lights your path “I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.” - Abraham Lincoln
  8. 8. 4. Hope is believing like a child “Believe in children, there is faith in their eyes, love in their touch, kindness in their gestures. Thrill with them at life’s big and small moments. . . Hold them close.”
  9. 9. 3. Hope floats your boat “I steer my bark with hope in my heart, leaving fear astern.” - Thomas Jefferson
  10. 10. 2. Hope finds a way Hope works in these ways: it looks for the good in people instead of harping on the worst; it discovers what can be done instead of grumbling about what cannot; it regards problems, large or small, as opportunities; it pushes ahead when it would be easy to quit; it "lights the candle" instead of "cursing the darkness."
  11. 11. 1. Hope in Christ “Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.” (2 Nephi 31:18–20).
