Listening is one of the best way of learning because when we fail to listen, then there is nothing a new method or idea in us to follow and practice. We cannot expect something wonderful to happen in life, when we consciously or unconsciously avoid changes within. Therefore, to be hopeful is nothing wrong but without constructing the right way then we are just hoping against hope for something meaningful to happen in our life.
