“You need to be more ‘realistic'” is a phrase that we hear. We say it to ourselves. But that is shaping our mindset, and it’s stifling you.
Mediocrity is borne on such words. That’s how the status quo is preserved, and growth is hindered.
You won’t push beyond your limits by thinking realistically.
Dreams are rarely “realistic.” They are outlandish, laughable, silly, stupid even.
But those who’ve reached unimaginable heights, the dreamers, were not “realistic.”
If they were, they would have never accomplished what they did.
So don’t be “realistic.” That’s not how you realize dreams.
Be silly. Be stupid. Be unrealistic.
