Description:

With its cutting-edge research and inspiring true stories of people who create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities,Making Hope Happenis the first practical guide to the anatomy of hope—how to create, use, and share it.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 Happenis 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 Happenalso 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.
