“Navigating up the emotional scale”
During this conversation, we explored the definitions of hope, belief & knowing. What we found was that this dynamic trio hope, belief & knowing serves the purpose in getting us to the next level.
Hope is the starting line where good things happen. However, that’s not where it should remain. Hope itself knows that in order to get to the next level of the race it must be passed to the baton of belief & belief itself knows that it must be passed to the baton of knowing! Knowing itself knows that it’s partners hope & belief pushed them towards the win!
These three always show up to the relay race of life together knowing that with each other they’ll always win. We can learn from the relationship of hope, belief & knowing by simply being honest & clear about where we are.
Sometimes we are at the stage of hope.
Sometimes we are at the stage of belief. And
Other times we are the stage of knowing.
In the space of knowing we get what we want. It can also be said that to know offers us the highest level of expectation. When we know something we expect it to be nothing less than what it is (for example we know that 2+3=5 in this case we never expect 2+3 to equal 4) why? Because we know 2+3 can never be less than what it is 5!
Expectation is built out of what is known! When you raise the level of knowing you raise the level of expectation. So, to hope is good, to believe is better & to know is best!
