Hope is a strong motivator for any team. In fact, it’s probably why we didn’t quit when everyone else did. Hope is different from a stubborn pride that refuses to quit. It’s more of a feeling of triumph before it happens. Hope is a vision to victory. It’s the light at the end of a tunnel. It’s the small clue that says the team is on the right track. Hope works best when it’s small and vague, because when we can name something clearly, we can diminish it in our mind. It’s more than a feeling. It’s a belief that if we keep going, everything will be ok.
