The most important ingredient for creating the world our hearts crave is hope. We must first have hope before we can do anything. We must believe sincerely and wholeheartedly that a world of peace and harmony with nature is possible. Then through hard work, a good strategy, and sincere diligence, we can mold such a world together.
