Our mission is to empower you to take the reins of your own life - achieve your greatest happiness - embrace your goals, dreams and desires - and live the life you’ve always dreamed of.
Dialogues in Self Discovery Center for The Option Method is dedicated to the work of Bruce M. Di Marsico, who taught that every one of us can be free from unhappiness if we understand our role and choice in its creation. He developed The Option Method as a simple and effective technique that goes to the heart of the true cause of unhappiness: our own personal belief system.
The Option Method is a personal growth and
development tool that you can learn and use in your life to help yourself and others take the mystery out of unhappiness, appreciate the cause and effect of beliefs, feelings and behavior, and understand what it means to choose your emotions. As a result, you can achieve your vision of happiness, embrace your goals, dreams and desires, and live joyfully and fearlessly.

Compassion is the bottom line in The Option Method. That’s the absolute requirement and if you ever want to learn to do it for yourself, you’ve got to be at least as nice to you as you would be to others. You’ve got to know when you’re ready to deal with something and when you’re not. And you’ve got to know when you don’t want to question your unhappiness and when you’d be glad to. When you get unhappy enough you’ll be glad to.[ Bruce Di Marsico ]
