This is what I have learned from This unit on Hope
What is Hope?
What is a hope creator?
What is a Hope CRUSHER?
Hope is the belief that an individual has control over the direction and quality of their future.
Hope and success
A hope creator is one who provides encouragement and promotes hope to others.
How do you maintain hope?
A hope crusher is a negative influence on ones development.
Hope is essential to ones success and as outlined in "Growing a Growth Mindset" "The good thing about hope is that it is a way of thinking and not an inborn character trait" meaning there is hope for everyone.
In order to maintain hope, one must surround themselves with positive influences and do their best to avoid the negative.
Hope is a keystone to ones success. Hope can and should come from both within and being but also received through hope creators such as Teachers, Parents, Coaches, Peers, and role models. A young mind is a sponge that needs positive influence and guidance.
