Hoping Is NOT A Process
I recall listening to Anthony Robbins in is early days, before he became the profound Guru that he is today. He was blunt, direct and said it like he felt it, not as refined as he does these days. I was attracted to his rawness and for years I followed him and lapped up every word he put out there. His words hit me where it mattered and moved me from thinking and hoping to action.
His catch phrase back then was: "Hoping is not a process." At first I din't get it. The Bible spoke about hope. We all hoped for better for ourselves and others. What could be wrong with hoping? I kept asking myself. I delved deeper and finally made the connection. Hoping was not bad, but it was not action. Hoping alone did not get us from one place to another.
When we hope we often close our eyes, stand still and wonder. We wonder about the possibilities and probabilities of something happening . . . or not. We enter into discourse with ourselves which more often than not results in us just giving ourselves a pep talk and taking NO action. We DO very little . . . or nothing . . . to get us closer to what we are hoping for. The reality is that if we just open our eyes and lean forward a little we will see the many opportunites we have all around us to take action and move one - or many - step closer to achieving our goals.
Hoping makes no sense if we are not willing to take action.
From a Wall to a Door
With closed eyes, we may be beating up on a wall thinking that it is a door and hoping that it opens. We keep hitting it harder and harder, our head hurts more and more and we wonder why it is not opening for us to benefit from the opportunities.
It is the same at Wealthy Affiliate. If we just hope and wonder and beat our heads against a wall, we will not achieve any of the goals we hope to achieve. Instead, we will become overwhelmed, dispondent and soon give up. I have seen many goals that have been set a year . . . or two . . . or three ago . . . and not achieved. For some, there may be good reasons but for many we simply get here, hope and sit back.
