Making Hope Happen
Create the Future You Want for Yourself and OtherseBook - 2013
How do some people make good things happen and bounce back from setbacks? Why do they lead happier, healthier, more productive lives? It's because they have hope -- not because of luck, or intelligence, or money. So, what exactly is hope and how can you get it, too? Using discoveries from the largest study of hopeful people ever conducted, psychologist Shane J. Lopez reveals that hope is not just an emotion but an essential life tool. Hope is also a leading indicator of success in relationships, academics, career, and business. In this evolution of positive psychology, Dr. Lopez provides strategies for building a high-hope mind-set and shares uplifting stories of real people -- parents, educators, entrepreneurs, young and old people with health challenges, and civic leaders -- who create hope and who change their own lives as well as their schools, workplaces, and communities.
