The Definition of Hope

Updated: May 28, 2019

I was listening to a speaker recently and he provided a definition of hope that I had never heard before.


He said that HOPE stands for Helping Other People Everyday.


What a great way to think about this word. It provides a set of simple actions instead of just a feeling. When we help other people it gives us a sense of pride, a sense of purpose, and then ultimately, a sense of hope.


We live in a challenging time where there is so much prosperity and at the same time so much sadness. We will all face adversity at some point in our lives. What I hope is that you don’t let that adversity define you. That you take challenges and use them to shape a better future for yourself.


As I talked about in a previous Marty’s Minute, we are better together and when you leverage that with hope and help other people everyday you will enjoy a happy and satisfying life.


Until next time…I’m Marty, make every minute count.
