Hope is a wonderful mindset. I see it as a wonderful ‘background mindset’, a mindset that exists in the background allowing other positive mindsets to take centre stage. For example, hope either inspires or opens the mind to accept inspiration. Hope provides the framework for internal motivation, bolstering optimism, conviction and confidence. This reduces the power of the negative mindsets for rumination, worry and fear by paving the paths for constructive action.
When we have goals, hope provides encouragement.
Hope adds enjoyment to our work.
Hope provides comfort during the difficult times.
On the other hand –
As the book ‘Hope Is Not A Strategy’ confirms, hope on its own accomplishes little.
Hope alone will not take us to our goals.
Hope adds meaning to life when it is accompanied by focused thought and planned action.
