Hope, as defined by Wikipedia, is an optimistic attitude of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large.
I have a saying, "Hope is not a plan." Hope is what we get to feel after we've put some effort and action towards our desired outcome. Hope is what we get to feel after we've made the sacrifices, the difficult choices, after we've done the hard work.
Hope is important because it's an optimistic attitude, and our attitude can have profound impact on our desired outcome. Our optimistic attitude is created by a series of actions we've taken to put us on the path toward our desired outcome. We should be optimistic after we've made the sacrifices, the difficult choices, after we've done the hard work.
We should have hope that what we want is achievable.
We should be optimistic and hopeful because we are confident that the sacrifices, difficult choices, and our hard work have set us on the right path. Hope is the wind the pushes us along the path to our desired outcome.
