While optimism can help us alleviate immediate suffering and persevere in challenging times, merely dreaming about the future actually makes people more frustrated over the long term and less likely to achieve their goals. Oettingen introduces a new way to visualize the future, combining our dreams with visualizing the obstacles that stand in our way, allowing us to make concrete plans, and gain energy to take action.

The book had some interesting information, but much was very repetitive. The author also had a patronizing tone at times which was annoying,
