There is a millions dollars or more worth of therapy in that video. The reason I like it is because it is not filled with a bunch of ridiculous motivational sayings that are based upon pipe dreams and wishes.
That is not to say I don’t believe that pipe dreams and wishes can come true because I do, but I don’t believe they are as easily obtained as some people would like us to think.
I am in favor of establishing realistic expectations. What that means is that we cannot rely upon luck or magic to manufacture a Hollywood ending and should focus our energies on hard work.
Good things come from that and people who work hard tend to do a good job of making their own luck.
Yet at the same time it is important to recognize the value of working smart. The world is filled with people who are willing to work hard but do so without a plan or any sort of road map.
Goals, Dreams and Expectations
The point is that if you have goals, dreams and expectations you can take steps to build a road map to try to help you transform fantasy into reality, that is assuming that your fantasy is something that is based in possibility.
It is unrealistic to dream that one day you are going to be able to levitate or fly. It is not completely unrealistic to dream of becoming president. Call the distinction impossible versus improbable.
The improbable may be unlikely but there is still a world of difference between that and impossible.
So when you are working on trying to achieve the improbable don’t forget the sunscreen.
