No one has ever benefited from realistic goals. Realistic goals lead to mediocre thoughts that lead to mediocre action. This will eventually lead to a mediocre lifestyle instead of a lifestyle of excellence. If someone tells you that your ideas are not realistic, look at them and see what type of results they have achieved. No one has ever achieved greatness as a result of realistic thinking. If greatness is what you are after, then set high objectives on a daily and continuous basis. Back this up with massive actions. Remember that the character you build on the way to these goals is what really matters. Quit worrying about the end result and focus on the process. Dream big! Think big! Every step on your journey will matter.
