Stop Trying to Be a More Disciplined Person [Podcast]

There’s a lie out there I want to tackle today, and the lie, the myth is this; that a successful person is a disciplined person, who leads a very disciplined life. Is that true? Many times we get discouraged when: we’re not as disciplined as other people appear to be when we’re not productive from […]

The Hope Quotient – Measure it. Raise it. You’ll Never Be the Same. (Thomas Nelson, 2014)

Why are some people more effective than other people? Why do some enjoy life while others endure life? Why do some soar while others sink? These are the questions that Ray Johnston answers in his new book The Hope Quotient.

The author makes the case that the one contributing factor that makes all of the difference is not your IQ or your EQ, but your HQ. The HQ is your Hope Quotient.

The book goes on to outline 7 factors that raise your hope quotient. These 7 factors have nothing to do with your smarts or what you inherited from your parents. These 7 factors can be developed and nurtured by anyone.

  1. Recharge your batteries
  2. Raise your expectations
  3. Refocus on the future
  4. Play to your strengths
  5. Refuse to go it alone
  6. Replace burnout with balance
  7. Play great defense

Question: How do you develop inner strength and hope?
