Have Promise

Life has little use for promises. As soon as you think something is promised, life will sweep in and wipe the slate clean, leaving you with nothing more than a memory of what you thought was supposed to happen. Whether it’s health, relationships, employment, money, success, loyalty, or even life itself, none of them MAKE promises, they can only HAVE promise, and it’s on you to SEE the promise life has for you.
Things we perceive as being promised by life are actually just hopeful predictions, and those hopeful predictions sometimes have the power to completely derail us when they don’t come true because we give them power they never had to begin with. That’s where you need to have promise as opposed to depending on promise. Having promise is foreseeing a positive outcome given a certain set of facts and circumstances, combined with a vision, hard work, and a little bit of self-generated luck.
Start having promise instead of depending on the inevitable broken promises life doles out to you. Having promise allows you to have flexibility, readjust, adapt to changing circumstances, and even overcome failure. It breeds a positive outlook, sets the tone, and lays out the path forward. Most importantly, instead of worrying about the “What if’s”, it ALLOWS for the “What if’s”, enabling you to seamlessly forge ahead, immune from the debilitating disappointment life has in store for you. Stop depending on promises you know the world can’t keep, and focus on having promise in all that you do, and you’ll find that promise had is even more powerful than a promise kept.
