Many years ago two salesmen were sent to Africa by a British shoe manufacturer. The goal of their trip was to investigate this new market, and to report their findings back to headquarters on the potential of the market.
The first salesman came back with a rather dismal report, “There’s no potential at all here, because nobody wears shoes.”
The second salesman came back with a rather different reply, “There’s massive potential in Africa, because nobody wears shoes.”
It’s our choice as to how we interpret any situation, whether we are looking at it positively with optimism, or as a challenge full of negativity. Today is the last day of HOPE's fiscal year and we are thrilled to report that through this past year of changes and challenges, HOPE is stronger than ever. Thanks to everyone that has supported HOPE this past year and kept the optimism and belief in HOPE's mission and vision. I am so grateful.
