About the Book

Finally, as an author, I have written the book which I personally wish I had had much earlier in my own life. As a road map, this book reveals how to discover your true calling, expand your capacity to dream, and maximize your acquirement of human hope. In plain language, it explains how to begin and continue to sustain a life of gratifying contentment. Unlike most self-help books, it contains none of the usual long list of dos and don'ts. Instead, it recommends very precise exercises and practical daily routines that are easy to follow and remember--including self-administered metrics for monitoring your own progress. If you are, or you know someone who might be in need of a practical manual to help him or her transition into successful adulthood; or a college student searching for relevant criteria for choosing the right major or a fulfilling career; a newlywed couple or a young professional who needs a guiding philosophy for achieving personal goals and aspirations; anyone actively searching for a more meaningful life; a parent , a teacher, or a counselor who needs a blueprint for mentoring and inspiring others--this book was written with you and them in mind. This is a book that is also full of practical tips for neutralizing the usual annoyances of everyday life as well as what to do exactly in the event of a personal misfortune or tragedy.

About the Author

Dr. Alphonsus Obayuwana has been involved in the study of Hope and Happiness since 1979, when as a medical student he first came in contact with psychiatric patients who had just attempted suicide. Forever transformed by these encounters, Dr. Obayuwana relentlessly continued his research on Human Hope for over 30 years in spite of a very demanding Ob/Gyn practice. His publications on the subject of Hope and Happiness can be found in local, national, and international (scientific and lay) journals including his 1984 national award-winning paper on “Stress, Human Hope, and Pregnancy Outcome”. His first book, The Five Sources of Human Hope: Mirror of our Humanity was published in 2012. In it, the rather elusive concept of “Human Hope” was extensively examined, analyzed, deconstructed, explained, and very successfully seperated from mythology. He demystified Hope and effectively removed it forever from abstraction by making it more tangible, real, and accessible. “How to live a life of hope” is the second book in his envisioned trilogy on the subject of Hope and Happiness. In this book, he has masterfully weaponized human hope into a practical tool for everyday optimal living. Currently, Dr. Obayuwana is the Lead Coach and CEO of the Triple-H Project, LLC -- an entity solely dedicated to the promotion of hopeful and happier human communities He is a retired Major in US Air Force Reserve, who has also previously held faculty positions at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the University of Maryland College of Medicine, Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia, and the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens, Ohio. He is also a former Associate Chair in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Vincent Medical Center, in Toledo, Ohio.
