Resumo: Hope is defined as the perceived capability to derive pathways to desired goals. The aims of the present study are to discuss hope as a self-regulation construct. Method: The study includes a convenience sample of 615 individuals from the community, 51.1% females. They fill a questionnaire that includes demo-graphic information, disease behavior, health satisfaction, quality of life, and the Hope Scale. Results: Results suggest a statistically significant relation between hope and outcomes of good health. Conclusions: We can conclude that hope, especially agency thinking, can be an interesting variable to be considered in studies about subjective aspects of health.
