Optimism is Positive and Realism is Negative

Posted by

I see a lot of optimism vs. realism out there. I'd like to suggest that those who interject realism as some kind of jab in the eye to those "wearing rose colored glasses" are simply clinging to a pessimistic view of optimism itself. Any dreamer, creator, or inventor in the past refused to be blinded by anything resembling "realism". Those who created and do great things see a better way. They believe in change. If mankind was plagued with realism we would still be sitting in caves without a fire. Keep your realism to yourself and let the creators of the world give you something to grin about. Be Positive and Follow Your Dreams with the Power of OPTIMISM!
