What a loaded sentence – hope is not a method. Well, I guess I could stretch things a bit to say that aligning the mind is part of aligning for success and therefore hope can be a method. Even so, the spirit of this sentence is that hope ALONE does not make things happen.
If I had a penny for every time I saw managers hoping things will change when nothing should lead them to believe it will change, I would be writing this post from my seaside home in Monaco.
Are you relying on hope too much instead of engaging in focused action?
