I believe I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky. In fact, I can barely touch my toes, and they're a lot lower than the sky. I believe I can be the big hot-shot property tycoon, when in fact my money is running out and I have two houses and one tenant between them. I believe I can be a big comedian, when I still can listen to my own set and barely even crack a smile.
However, the above paragraph actually proves that I'm not delusional, since I know the limitations and fight them.
But there are some who are so blinded by their own dreams, that they superimpose their dreams over reality and assume it will comply. In some cases, they drift along, and noone has the heart to put them right, and the result is the success that they crave, if not deserve. However, in some cases, people are acting like they're about to get the next big break, when the reality couldn't be further from the truth.
Hey everyone, let's spend a fortune on this because it's an amazing opportunity that will springboard us into the future. No. Let's not. Because the reality is that you can't make a huge leap forward in your life just by turning up to something.
Who or what I'm talking about will remain a matter for me to worry about. Needless to say, I'll keep checking my own reality gap to make sure that I'm clear on why things probably won't work out, while remaining optimistic that I might be able to swing some sort of success out of them anyway.
