Optimism is the Faith that Leads to Achievement

“Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.” ~ Richard M. DeVos

This week we were told via the WordPress Photo Challenge: “This week show us something you’re optimistic about, or perhaps a talisman that helps you stay positive and hopeful, regardless of what life (and the weather!) throws your way.”

And so for starters, I am optimistic that I can harvest lemons just as juicy and large as my neighbours after planting a few seeds.  Secondly, I am also optimistic that if I drink enough spinach smoothies and eat enough salad, my scale will finally be my friend.

Wish me luck by leaving an encouragement comment and thanks for visiting!

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” ~ Helen Keller

“One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.” ~ Lucille Ball

And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:12-14 (NIV)
