Freedom And The Illusion of Realism

What do you want in life? A stable household, being able to go out every once in a while, working until your retirement at 60, etc?

Or do you want freedom? The ability to achieve anything you set your mind to, whether it be to change the world, reach millions of people and improve their lives, protect wildlife and nature, advance science for the sake of humanity’s future,  or anything else?

Frankly, I don’t know about you, but I’m leaning towards the latter. But isn’t that unrealistic?

Sure it is, if you want it to be. Look at it this way, there are rich people on earth, there are successful people on earth, there are people changing the world, why can’t you be one of them? My best guess is that you won’t let yourself be.

Frankly, this question of realism is starting to anger me, since when is it okay to dismiss a goal by saying it’s unrealistic? If humanity only worked towards realistic goals, there wouldn’t be airplanes, internet, electricity, and literally almost everything we use on a daily basis. Think about it, have you ever had an awesome idea and you’ve just dismissed it under the guise of it being unrealistic? Why is it actually unrealistic? Have you honestly given thought as to why that idea is automatically labelled as unrealistic to you?

And to finish off this bombardment of questions, have you actually at least tried?
