Recently I found a quote that says this, "It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light" This quote by Aristotle means that no matter how bleak and despairing your life may seem there is always that small light. You may not be able to see it very clearly at first but it is there.
That light is hope.
Hope is what makes us believe that a situation can become better no matter what. It is what our society thrives on. Hope is everywhere. Whether it be from a religious standpoint or even something as simple as school. You have the power to control that hope to make it happen. Like say you wish for a good grade on that test? You have the power to look over notes or ask for help. You have to work for it to come true. It is not easy but we have lived long enough as humans to learn that giving up is never the only option. There is always more to accomplish. Greater than things that have already been done. You just have to believe in yourself and work hard to make it happen.
This is one of our new self-help resources available to our Ambassador community. Here we will feature the thoughts, questions, and insight of the our fellow Ambassadors. You can even leave comments of encouragement or feedback to fellow Ambassadors that may be having a tough time.
