How Do You Keep Hope Alive?
Sometimes you have to set your stuff aside and look beyond your personal letdowns. In order to keep hope alive, you must be O-T-H-E-R focused.
Optimism. Stay positive no matter what. Keep a good attitude about your situation and about others.
Talk affirmatively. Convey to others words of affirmation. Positive words from you can make a major difference in the life of someone else.
Help others. Help other people pursue their dreams. Invest in the people around you, and help them get a leg up.
Express availability. Express to those around you that you are open and available if they need you.
Resist negativity. Resist worrying about what you do not have, and instead be thankful for what you do have.
