    I think that having a lack of hope means you may have a negative perception of life which could inhibit exploration, creativity, freedom, and play necessary to learn the necessary skills to change your circumstances. Fear can be motivating, but eventually the added stress will take its toll and lead to depression.

    Isnt this negative perception of life an fearful perception of life?

    Also this motivational aspect of fear, isnt it there to push you towards hope?

    Now if there wouldnt be fear, wouldnt it also prevent you from pushing towards harder? If so, wouldnt it lower your success(as you dont feel the need try hard enough) and therefore limit your hope, if you are an reasonably realistic person?

    So in the end, isnt it just about how we deal with fear, like if we go against our fears, instead of running away of our fears? Go against the fear, success, gain something and will be able to have hope for something even bigger..

    If you are under stress your body will release adrenaline in response to the fear if the fear persists for a prolonged period of time (several months) you will begin producing cexcessive amounts of cortisol which will leave you feeling scattered, withdrawn, and low on energy. Instead of viewing yourself as running from a negative outcome it may help to view yourself as moving toward the positive outcome you are seeking and really viscerally experiencing how great it feels to have attained what you ARE seeking. This will give you the positive motivation to make the changes you want and will leave you feeling a lot better lol
