Is it dangerous to have too much hope?

I had the honor of speaking to 125 students at Ngee Ann

Polytechnic in Singapore on Friday evening. This event was set up by our Ziglar Legacy Certified trainers Amily Ang and Alex Tham.

What made it special is that it was a Friday night and the attendance was voluntary! The Ziglar message resonates everywhere in the world.

One of the students asked this question: "Is it dangerous to have too much hope?"

By the way, I love Q & A sessions because you never know

what kind of questions you are going to get!

Here was my answer.

First, it is far more dangerous to have too little hope. Hopeless people don't even try; they will not take action.

Second, hope needs to be built on the solid foundation of planning, preparing, and doing.

When we plan and prepare, we can expect good things to happen. This hope is on solid ground. We focus on what we can do and expect the best.

Dad always said, "Never give a promise without a plan," because this creates false hope.

You are Born To Win, so go ahead and Live To Win!
