"Where there is hope in the future, there is happiness in the present.”
On this Frequently Asked Friday, we tackle the question: Where can I find hope?
In our recent How Can I Stay Motivated? episode, we discussed failure as a stepping stone to success, not the opposite of success. In fact, the opposite of success might be hopelessness, because, without hope, there's no opportunity to create our ideal future.
Temporary feelings of hopelessness and sadness are normal, but persistent hopelessness is dangerous. Hope means there's opportunity in the future, and since no one knows what the future truly holds, we are free to use hope to craft and believe in a better future.
While creating a great future takes vision, goals, faith, and belief, it all begins with an understanding of hope. Where there is hope in the future, there is happiness in the present.
Listen in for more on holding onto hope; using a hopeful future to drive today's happiness; and how to manufacture hope through goals, heroes, and even books.
