Should we live in hope?

In fact, a bit like optimism and pessimism, hope is a delicate balance to get right. Why not the more the better? Surely the more we hope that we’ll succeed, the more we’re actually likely to get what we want? In job interviews, for instance, or dating, a hopeful and positive attitude may manifest itself as confidence and subtly influence the outcome. The downside is that too much hope risks inviting self-deception and interfering with our ability to assess and deal wisely with reality.
