“In all things it is better to hope than to despair.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In every challenging situation we have the choice of our perspective. When we despair we add power to the problem. But when we choose to be hopeful, we cut the cords that tie us to the problem and we add power to the creative solution.
Do not allow despair to cloud your vision: the great challenges of our world will quickly be overcome as soon as enough of us put on the mantle of hope.
