If you can dream it, you can do it. Contrary to popular belief, the dreamers are also the doers. Readers will find a wealth of examples of the very real and transformative power of optimism and the amazing places and giddy heights it can take you to. They will also benefit from pragmatic, real-world strategies for developing an optimistic outlook on one's life, its circumstances, and its possibilities and how to translate optimistic thought into positive action into desired outcome. While inspirational and transformative, this is also an excellent resource for fulfilling various Common Core standards for the reading of informational texts, including ample opportunities for summarizing text, evaluating an argument and the validity of its claims and reasoning, determining an author's point of view and purpose, and determining main ideas and their supporting details.
