Being Realistic is the Most Commonly Traveled Road to Mediocrity

When talking about goals or dreams of any sort, you’ve probably heard someone say something like “let’s be realistic.” Maybe you’ve even uttered it yourself.

But as this Will Smith quote reminds us, being realistic isn’t doing any favors for your ambitions: Being realistic comes with a sense of security, comfort, and a natural inclination to find the path of least resistance, discouraging risks.

It may be scary, but sometimes you need that special kind of crazy to think that hey, maybe you can actually accomplish what you’ve dreamed of.
