You have dreams. You have goals.
You have aspirations. And…You have options.

Goals and dreams are meant to be achieved. However, change is often necessary to find the right path to success, and change can be challenging. How do you keep a positive outlook in the face of perceived obstacles?

Deirdre A. McClarin understands this dilemma and shares her inspirational story about finding hope and grace in moments of uncertainty in Optional Optimism: It’s All in How You Look at It. Deirdre believes everyone can choose to pursue their dreams—and everyone deserves to achieve them.

In this moving book, readers are welcomed into Deirdre’s own life story of perseverance and discovering the power of an optimistic outlook. Alongside her memoir readers will get a chance to look inward and better understand their own outlook on life.

With her deep and abiding passion for uplifting others, Deirdre engages readers in thought-provoking exercises to promote optimism in everyday life in order to move forward toward their dreams.

Written with warmth and focused empowerment, Optional Optimism: It’s All in How You Look at It refuses to accept the glass is ever half-empty. When you start changing how you see the world, you begin to see not what is—but what can be.
