When people say: “Be realistic,” what they really mean is:
“Do what everyone else is doing,”
“Don’t stand out,” and
“I can’t see what you’re seeing.”
If you’re a dreamer, creator, or a visionary, you believe in something that only exists in your mind - for now.
Everything we observe in our reality only existed in someone’s mind at one point, but they believed in it so much that they brought it to reality.
The only way to create is to believe in something so strongly that you don’t need others to believe in it and you don’t seek approval from them.
It’s not their job to keep your dream alive. That is your job.
