Any vision we have of a better future is built on hope. Hope, however, is only a mirage, a figment of our imagination.
While hope is arguably a necessary motivator for us, it is an abstraction that in and of itself has no power. What really moves us toward our vision is a concrete plan of action, deliberate steps to be taken, firm commitments of time, resources, and effort.
While hope is a beautiful thing, it is really nothing more than wishful thinking. Realizing those aspirations can only occur when we've intentionally committed ourselves to achieving those dreams.
So, absolutely, let's place our hope in a better future.
Then let's craft a plan of action that will move us in that direction, making the mirage a reality.
