Five Tips for Nurturing Hope

Ilchi Lee Leadership and HopeI often encourage people to act as a leader in their own lives—to find their dream and never give up on it regardless of the obstacles and criticism they face. Although taking on a leadership role brings many trials, it also brings great joy and happiness.

In order to be a leader, you need a steady source of hope. That source comes from your true nature. So to find hope, look inside yourself. Feel a sense of hope in your essence and hold onto it. Gather it little by little until it shines brightly in the darkness.

Here are a few things you can do to keep your hope strong and bright:

1. Develop a clear head, open heart, and strong core with exercises such as Brain Wave Vibration, Jungchoong Breathing (abdominal breathing in different energy accumulation and circulation postures), and Kigong. They will bring out your true nature and give you the action power to follow your dream.

2. Break through your habits and limitations. One by one, find the things that cover up your true nature and keep you from your dream, and then create new habits to override them.

3. Don’t let your environment do the driving. You need to adjust your environment so that it’s conducive to success. If you listen to your environment without changing it, you can lose hold of your hope inside.

4. Instead of blaming others for your obstacles, take responsibility for finding a solution. Be the leader that can show others how to overcome obstacles both in finding hope and achieving your dream together.

5. Share what hope you have with others. The more you share hope, the stronger it grows within you and around you. Sharing hope also helps you change your environment.
When you live as a leader and shine your hope brightly to the world, you will find true happiness in your life.
