#8777  How do some people make good things happen and bounce back from setbacks? Why do they lead happier, healthier, more productive lives? Its because they have hope – not because of luck, or intelligence, or money. So, what exactly is hope and how can you get it, too?
Using discoveries from the largest study of hopeful people ever conducted, world-renowned expert on the psychology of hope Shane J. Lopez, Ph.D., reveals that hope is not just an emotion but an essential life tool. Hope is also a leading indicator of success in relationships, academics, career, and business.
With this book you can measure your level of hope and learn how to create and share it.
Dr. Lopez provides strategies for building a high-hope mindset and shares uplifting stories of real people who create hope and who change their own lives as well as their schools, workplaces, and communities. They include:
  • The CEO who befriended a curious nine-year-old, bringing him into the company and transforming his attitude toward school and future goals.
  • A young entrepreneur who worked to change laws that stood in his way, recruited friends to support his start-up, and rebuilt from scratch after a fire.
  • The college president whose creative fundraising during the worst of the economic downturn kept her neediest seniors in school through graduation.
  • The city council members who developed a visionary recovery plan only days after their community was flattened by a tornado.
  • Two mothers and a principal who reversed decades of neglect and mismanagement to turn a failing school into a neighborhood magnet.
  • A college student who is thriving after two heart transplants, and whose hopeful self-care has been key to her survival.

Making Hope Happen is for people who believe that the future can be better than the past or the present and who are looking for a way to make it so.
