Making Hope Happen: Create the Future You Want for Yourself and Others
Senior Scientist, Shane Lopez, PhD, explores the one emotion—hope—that
divides our society into two camps: those of us who believe everyone has it; or,
those who believe everyone else
has it. Either way, we all want more of it, Lopez argues—without even
understanding what hope is and how to use it. The first step? Articulating the
difference between optimism (a rosy attitude with which some are born) and hope
(an ability to see that the future can be better and that you have a role in
creating it). Hope is made, not handed down, he writes, and it can be learned
even by pessimists.
