#OneWord Thursday: #Hope is a thing with feathers…

On August 15, 2013 by Janice Taylor

Over the past few decades, research shows that one of the most powerful vehicles, one of the most potent tools, to get you “there,” the place that you so desire to be, where life is good and you have achieved your goals (permanent weight removal and otherwise) is hope!

Optimism, positivity, passion, inspiration are all important, useful ways to operate in and navigate through life, but hope is particularly under-valued, under-appreciated and under-used.

Think of hope as a mindset, a mind-strategy, a series of positive thoughts that are in alignment with your goals.  Life’s twists and turns are inevitable.  The Hope Mindset keeps you on track and moving in the direction that you so desire; toward your goals.  Hope is directly related to positive outcomes.

Here, Our Lady of Weight Loss and Janice Taylor (that’s me), Happiness Coach (weight loss expert) offer 10 HOPE Quotes to help you strengthen your Hope Mindset and Muscles; to fuel your journey
