Hope wins and not cynicism
It is true that hope triumphs over cynicism. Life is not a bed of roses – there are thorns along the way – but we still move forward in life because we have hope for the future. In spite of the challenges and obstacles that life throws on us, we don’t give up – we face our fears, learn from our mistakes and make better decisions in the future. If we are pessimistic, we cannot proceed in life – we will be afraid of challenges and this will prevent us from reaching our goals.
All the successful men and women managed to scale great heights because of hope – they were not successful in their first try but they were confident of their abilities and had hope that one day, they will be shining stars. They then took risks in life and emerged victorious.
Since young, Walt Disney was passionate about drawing political caricatures and comic strips. However, getting a job was not easy for Walt Disney. He struggled to get a decent job and after years of hard work, he managed to rise high in his career. And today, Walt Disney’s corporation, known as The Walt Disney Company, has an annual revenue of Rs 2.7 trillion (US$45 billion).
It was hope that pushed Walt Disney to try harder in his career and reach his potential. If Walt Disney had become cynical during his unemployment days, he would not have become a business magnate later.
Mahatma Gandhi had hope that one day, India would be independent and free from the clutches of the British. It was this hope that pushed Mahatma Gandhi to tread the difficult and arduous path towards independence. If he had been pessimistic right from the beginning, India and many other countries would not be independent today.
Hope fills us with courage and determination to move forward and this helps us in improving not only our lives but the lives of people around us too.
Pessimism helps no one – it only makes us depressed and anxious. In history, there are no examples where cynicism has triumphed over hope. Winston Churchill once said, “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty”.
We cannot run away from difficulties – we have to face them head on; so, why not make the most of the difficulties by finding opportunities for growth? Once you start thinking in this direction, you will be one step closer to reaching your goals.
