Is It Necessary to be Realistic?

Think about this. If everyone was realistic, nothing outstanding would ever be accomplished. Nothing is real until somebody makes it so.

At one point, it wasn't considered realistic to sail around the world. It wasn't considered realistic to fly. Many of the things that are now part of our everyday life were once science fiction.

Everyone who has ever done anything significant has had to deal with people who thought they were crazy, or at the very least, unrealistic.

So, what's wrong with being unrealistic? It's the people who aren't afraid to dream of what could be that bring to pass the innovations that make our lives easier and more enjoyable. There's a lot to be said for people who take things that are already in existence and make them better, but somebody had to be the visionary that made the impossible or the improbable real.
