Unrealistic 05/11/2021

I was recently talking to a friend about my plans for the future. I told him that I believe that I will be successful by doing what I love. That this way I will be able to bring the most value to this world and of course continue to be happy. I told him that I don't care about money and that I believe it should come as a by-product of helping others and enjoying life. His response was something I have been thinking about for some time. He said: "Don't be so naive Johannes."

I find myself very troubled in my head today. Am I really being naive? I remember starting conversations about my dreams by saying, "It may seem unrealistic, but..." And now that I think about it I wonder why? Who cares if they seem implausible? I'm sure I would never have dreams if I didn't believe I could achieve them. The truth is, I will follow them no matter what. And if they change, then so be it, but rest assured that they will continue to be even more "unrealistic".
