Hope is the leading indicator of success in relationships, academics, career, and business—as well as of a healthier, happier life. Now, in his first popular book, Shane Lopez reveals the results of his revolutionary research on the psychology of hope together with new findings from around the world. Making Hope Happen is the first scientifically based blueprint for mobilizing the energy and power of hope in every area of an individual's life. It details proven strategies and techniques for building a high-hope mindset that is also effective for meeting short- and long-term goals. Readers will take a hope quiz, learn to find where their best hope lies, and define what matters most to them in order to drive hope today and into the future.
The newest evolution of positive psychology, Making Hope Happen also tells the inspiring stories of real people—parents, educators, entrepreneurs, young and old people with health challenges, and civic leaders—who create hope and who transformed their own lives as well as their schools, workplaces, and communities. The message is clear: Hope matters. Hope is a choice. Hope can be learned and spread to others. How well we hope determines how well we live.
