“Few people have the imagination for reality.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In this world, there are those who have big goals and expect them to happen. There are also those who think that those same people’s goals are outlandish. They would rather stay in their comfort zone and carry on the same level of simplistic lives that their parents lived. Those people think that having major ‘outlandish’ goals is unrealistic.
This is the reason why I no longer use the word ‘realistic’.
I have travelled the world and have seen first hand that nothing is truly unrealistic. I just returned from my second trip to Monaco yesterday and have seen yachts that were the length of three or four average size homes and as tall as three-storey buildings. I bet the first person to build a boat could never think of seeing something so grand. But when you see it, you know it can happen. I have seen some things that you would only see in movies. I have heard stories of things happening that you would immediately assume were lies but have happened. So please try and tell me that something is impossible.
Sharing your plans and goals can truly reveal how people think. When people scold you for your ambitions and tell you to be realistic or to simplify them, they are coming from a place of insecurity. Maybe they had goals of their own that failed so they are placing their traumas upon you. Maybe their parents struggled with money so they could never imagine themselves taking their hard earned money to invest it in something that could tank at any moment.
Most of these people, because of their insecurities, have put blinders on their eyes. They do not see opportunities in front of them because when these opportunities peak out from their hiding spots, these particular people see them blurred. They cannot comprehend what they cannot see clearly. Sometimes the best things that come to you are things that you cannot fully understand but see the potential in.
So I urge you to explore life, see the world, educate yourself, and speak with people you may think are unreachable. Expose yourself to everything. Because sometimes it just takes you seeing something that you though didn’t exist or hearing someone tell you they have accomplished something you though impossible for you to get that ‘ah hah’ moment. It is impossible for you to see the world and not be inspired, unless you purposefully have your blinders up and are closed-minded.
Some may travel to Monaco just to see celebrities or to see yachts. I go there to see that what I expect to happen in my life will happen. Not because I just want it to, but because its been done before. Don’t let your small town or city dictate what possibilities there are for you. I nearly completely uprooted my life from Canada to Europe in order for my expectations in life to match my environment. I have not regretted it since.
So, do not come from a place of is this possible, but rather, let’s make this possible.
Until next time,
Live Long and Prosperous.
