Be optimistic, but be real with yourself.
Optimism is a blessing and those that take hold of it are able to accomplish what others call impossible. But a successful optimist is also relentless in work ethic and focus. In other words, you cannot expect to make it happen by doing nothing. I’m not telling you to dumb down your dream, I’m just telling you to be prepared to work for it.
