A Spiritual Parable of Life and Leadership by Jeff Caliguire
Do you feel like you’re always searching for answers you never find?
Does the daily grind leave you wondering when you’ll have time to do the things you really want to do?
Have you given up hope that your life will ever be anything but hard work and a mundane effort just to survive?
In The Habits of Hope, Gus, a middle-aged businessman, husband, and father, is experiencing those very same feelings. After a rough day at the office, a blowup with his wife, and a night of despair, he has an unexpected adventure when a letter arrives from a childhood mentor requesting he travel to Hope, New York. Gus is skeptical that the trip will be worthwhile, but he goes anyway, and soon, his life takes a 180-degree turn.
What Gus is about to learn may well be the nuggets of wisdom you are looking for. In these pages, readers will discover that the HABITS OF HOPE is an acronym for the fourteen aspects of hope they need to incorporate in their lives, including:
