Casablanca Pt. 1: How to Spread Hope in a Worried World

You don't have to look much further than your immediate group of friends or acquaintances each day to find people who are lacking in hope, without a cause to believe in. In Casablanca, we find a microcosm of humanity, a battle for hope. Just because we aren't in WWII, like the characters in Casablanca, doesn't mean that there isn't a palpable lack of hope in the air. It could be your department at work, your extended family, or even you yourself that are perpetuating a proverbial Casablanca environment where hope is throttled through something like an exit visa process that most are unable or unwilling to break out of. But how do we break out of that space where hope is teetering on the edge of a knife? In part 1 we will look no further than Rick Blaine as an example of how we can identify when we are trapped in Casablanca and how to break out of the Casablanca mindset.
