Spark of Hope #111 – It’s Not About You is a story about a seemingly impossible uphill climb. The best-selling parable about leadership and the power of positive persuasion conveys a great message about facing challenges. It follows right along with the authors’ prequel message of “give and you shall receive.” Christmas presents a perfect time to spotlight what giving does for the heart and soul, and it doesn’t require buying presents. Changing our focus from getting to giving leads to unexpected returns … and benefits beyond the imagination of the go-giver. Steve Maraboli sums it up perfectly: “Give freely to the world these gifts of love and compassion. Do not concern yourself with how much you receive in return, just know in your heart it will be returned.”
Hope is like a spark; if the conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion, and inspires others. Tucked inside each of us is a child-like spark that says: never forget to dream, play and imagine. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday!
