Idealists vs. Realists

I’m a dreamer, in fact, I dream a lot; however, I also believe in processes and systems to help in manifesting all you want to come into fruition through the energy and vibes that are put towards a goal you are focussed on. I can tell you that all that I have and all that I have experienced I have willed it, or attracted if you will, into my life; the good and the bad, just as you have. Often I come across people who are the exact opposite; the realists, dun dun dunnnn… And that’s ok with me because we are all unique and whatever makes you happy makes me happy. But for some reason realists love to challenge me. For example, I came across a gentleman at the airport at the wine bar and we got to chatting while we waited for our plane and I shared with him some of my life experiences and as usual I am very colourful in all that I do and strive to do, and as usual in my experiences, idealists always look at me dazed and somewhat confused and give me that sympathy smile and tell me how fantastic it is that I have very big dreams and that they are fun to think about but are only tall tales and they will never come true. That is amazing to me that people would want to try to burst someone’s bubble like that. So basically what this gentleman was telling me, from what I understood, was that ‘he’ is only able to see what is in his radar screen and beyond that it was impossible for him to see anything else but all that he deserved to acheive.

(1) An idealist practices envisioning things in an ideal manner/form, or in a simpler term they aim for perfection and new heights. (2) The idealist sees events as the result of strategic planning of their dreams and a person who cherishes or pursues high or noble principles, purposes, goals, etc.

(1) A realist sees things in literal truth and pragmatism, or more grounded on reality. (2) The realist sees events as the result of local, lower-level tactical decisions; a person who tends to view or represent things as they really are and nothing more.

I listened as he explained to me his life and just as I suspected he worked in a cubicle, he was scared of everything, he saved every single penny and was the type that waits for a special occasion to break out the silver or special dinnerware. As much as I am a dreamer, I admit that there are times where I begin to lose faith a little, not because I’m human (which I will add is a sorry excuse as we are born into this world as divine beings with an abundance of resources and extreme power within that most people need help to unleash); where I don’t believe in myself enough because of the obstacles I am faced with but nothing good comes easy (and I am not talking about relationships – if it’s been that difficult for you and your partner you may want to reconsider).

Others can always see the potential in you but it’s up to you to realize it, believe it, see it, own it and use it.

Realists have a firm grip on reality and can see things for what they are, not what they are told they are. Realists have their own views and do not fall victim to propaganda, misconception, or titles. Idealists like going outside of the box because they know that is the only way they can grow.

1. There is the Realist who believes the glass is half empty.2. There is the Idealist who believes the glass is half full.

4.  Then there is me, the dreamer, and I am so excited that there is even a glass!!!

No matter what, remember that people’s dreams are theirs. Why burst their bubble? Let them live in their feeling of joy. You’re not Superman, but if you want to be then be there for them when they fall but certainly don’t hold people back when they are ready to take off. If you can imagine it or dream it then planning the necessary steps will get you there. You just have to keep believing and never let the naysayers steer you into their direction because misery loves company. Be aware and fully certain about your dreams and what anyone says will never matter. Happy dreaming and creating!
