Have you a dream? Have you a hope for a bigger, better you? Okay, so for you everything is just fine. But is it? Is it really or did you some time ago grow up and shelve those silly, childish hopes, dreams and beliefs? You know.those ones you had back in the day when the world revolved around you and only you. Or maybe they were very realistic and you actually chased them down for a dozen years to no avail. Whether you are an up and comer striving to beat down a new path or a mid life struggler tripping over the re-growth of the berry vines in the old path, you're inevitably going to have a question or two about what to do with those hopes, dreams, and beliefs. Are they valid? Are they achievable or are you just a silly fool that needs to grow up, mature and get on with life? "Hope's Handbook-In Search of the Hollywood Ending" is dedicated to you. The Hopeful. Those of you who wish, dream and believe.which easily enough to believe is most of us. Just as most of us are born with opposing thumbs most of us are born with these common, simple, hopeful desires. The only problem associated with this is that most of us are taught how to apply these opposing thumbs for practical use and very few of us are ever taught how to apply our hopes and dreams for practical use. With the exception being, "Never let your hopes and dreams get in the way of putting food on the table." Well guess what? No one's going to go to their grave from missing a meal. But do you want to go to that grave without a hope?
