1. Identify your hidden desires, dreams and potential.

Successful leaders don’t take careless risks; they take risks thoughtfully, diligently and cautiously

  • Pay attention to what bothers you – Your inner voice might be telling you something.
  • Overcome negativity
  • Don’t ignore persistent dreams
  • Analyze your fantasies – Perhaps they’re saying something is missing from your life.
  • Confront obstacles and fears
  • Don’t let envy confuse you
  • Pay attention to symptoms – Is your body trying to communicate something to you?
  • Seek community
  • Pray

2. Don’t accept negativity. Direct your energy toward actions that trigger hope.

Successful leaders overcome aspects of their lives that make them feel negative, which can include those that are:

  • “Physical” – Clutter, junk and an overflowing email inbox have a deleterious impact on your environment.
  • “Relational” – Beware of people who influence you negatively.
  • “Emotional” – Avoid unnecessary worry or anxiety.
  • Time-based – Reconsider activities that don’t lead you in a productive direction.

“Hope means investing time and energy toward results that you have solid reason to believe can be achieved.”
