Will the Global Health Challenge make you hopeful?
No. We can teach you the “how-to” of hope, but the decision to do the work and embrace the skills is up to you. You have to want it, and be willing to take inspired actions to make it happen. And, you have to be willing to reach out for help when you need it.
The reality is, we are all stressed. And when stressed, we can turn to bad habits; overeating, addictions, outbursts, even violence. We can avoid the things that keep us healthy, and bring us happiness and joy, such as exercise, nutrition, and laughter. We can isolate ourselves, and lose our strong support networks. We can ruminate and worry. Excessively.
These courses won’t make you hopeful, but it will take you through the process of creating, maintaining, and growing hope. It is a process that I have developed and evolved over the years, based on the knowledge of hope experts, my own research, and lived experience.
The Global Hope Challenges has been created based on my work with Hopeful Minds, the vision of iFred, and the tireless work of people around the world. The challenges are constantly evolving as we learn more about the power of hope, and continue to research the best ways to inspire hope in ourselves and others.
These are critical skills that we all need in our lives. Each and every one of us. Now, more than ever.
Take good care, all, and enjoy the journey. To hope.
