Bruce M. Di Marsico (1942-1995) was an American psychotherapist who created The Option Method in the late 1960's. Di Marsico spent his early years as a Catholic seminarian and student of psychology and philosophy, and later practiced as a psychotherapist and human relations consultant. He came to understand that every person has a choice in their own happiness and strove to develop a simple, effective self-help tool that each person can use to live their happiest life. The Option Method has spread around the world, helping others achieve their own greatest wisdom and happiness.

I have tried lots and lots of different techniques and methods that promise some sort of a change, external or internal, and I have to say they all worked, in their own unique way, but no method was as direct as the Option method. The only reason we want any kind of change is because we believe it will make us happy. The Option Method cuts to the chase: "you don't have to be unhappy if you don't want to".
It suggested that I always feel exactly what I believe I should feel. One part of me was so very happy to hear that! But there was another part of me. It refused to think that I wanted to be unhappy at any moment. Well, The Option method had an answer to that: sometimes I believe that I need to be unhappy in order to be happy! Wow! As silly as it sounds that is actually exactly what happens and we can prove it to ourselves through few simple questions.
I know I did. At first, the questions sounded kind of silly - are you seriously asking me why I get sad about my problem? But after really, I mean, REALLY asking myself these amazing questions I was able to see "hidden treasures" - the beliefs that were holding my happiness hostage. I learned that sometimes I needed to motivate myself through being unhappy with myself, or sometimes I needed to be sad to show that I care. Well, I also learned that I don't need to be unhappy in order to want something or to show my compassion. I can just want what I want and be happy!
I feel like The Option method gave me a permission to be happy and I fully intend to do just that!
Don't delay your happiness for one more moment, try the Method and see for yourself how it can change your whole world.
