Hope is one of the most important mental traits in life. Hope is incredibly important in life for health, happiness, and for success. Hope reduces your feelings of helplessness, boosts your happiness, reduces your stress, and improves your quality of life.
Hope gives you motivation. It is that voice inside that says, ‘Yes, you can’. And it is that voice that makes you work hard, that makes you learn new things, that gives you the impetus to actually try.
When you are optimistic you are given the motivation to make positive choices and to take positive actions that will move you along the path to success.
Andy: There are places in the world that aren’t made out of stone, that there’s, there’s somethin’ inside that they can’t get to, that they can’t touch. It’s yours.
Red: What are you talkin’ about?
Red: Hope? Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. It’s got no use on the inside. You’d better get used to that idea.
Andy: Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. – The Shawshank Redemption
