Being realistic is over rated. It seems that most people have at some point in time been faced with this bottleneck when it comes to their dreams. Well meaning family, friends and colleagues are quick to offer up their opinions and beliefs only to quelch the inspiration or beliefs of another. But just because someone else doesn’t believe it can be done doesn’t mean that it’s not worth pursuing.
Here’s a question that accentuates just how over rated ‘being realistic’ is, where in history are those who settle for the status quo celebrated? It’s the dreamers, those who dare to depart from the norm, those who challenge the thinking of the day, those who take a risk on their vision that history remembers. Everyday we’re choosing our outcomes and make no mistake, we’re all on the way to the grave so we may as well make it count.
“Being realistic is the most common path to mediocrity.” – Will Smith. Have you ever caught yourself saying, “I’m just trying to be realistic” because everyone around you is telling you to be more realistic.
