Is it better to be realistic than to be idealistic?

  • Its better to be realistic

    Being realistic is just facing the truth. There are a lot of things that may seem idealistic that are actually realistic in a sense that they are possible, but hard to accomplish. Thinking out side the box is not the literal term of being idealistic. The main difference between the both is knowing your limitation. Not having money or being an immigrant and so on, can have an influence in what you can accomplish in life (especially in this type of government). Most accomplished people come from rich families or some sort of advantage that get them places. The sense of saying being realistic is better is because one is not going over their head with a fantasies.

  • Idealism is setting yourself up for disappointment.

    It is better to be a realist because you can be more prepared for what will come. Idealism only works if you strive to make it happen through vigorous work. But most of the time people are just dreamers. I myself used to have a idealistic way of though until i was disappointed that i couldn't make it happen.

  • Always better to be real.

    It is always better to be realistic than to be idealistic. An idealist is likely to have their dreams shattered where an idealist is going to be prepared for whatever might come their way. Most idealists eventually turn into realists after they have had enough heartache. It is better to start out with realistic expectations. If things do work out for the best, a realist will be presently surprised. That's always better than being unrealistically crushed.

  • It depends on the person, but most of the time, yes.

    People that work towards their ideals to make them reality can make great impacts on society. They can change things. Unfortunately, people that dream these days do just that and only that. Dream. They do push for things they want, they simply wish upon stars and think everything in life will get better with no effort whatsoever. So, that is why it's often better to be realistic. A realistic person isn't going to aim to be an artist if they know that nurses and doctors are in higher demand. A realistic person isn't going to be scammed, and lose all their cash because they felt bad while watching some random saddening commercial. We have to have some level headed people that live in reality, to support the idealistic people out there living on welfare and practicing impressionism on canvas that won't sell.

  • Dreams Made, Nations Built

    Idealism sparks a fire in your soul to make a difference in yourself or the world. While most say that idealist don't always work. If no work is involved, then the person is not an idealist, they are a dreamer. If curious people didn't dream we(as a whole) would be without so much. If European colonist didn't dream of a better world, we would not have the America we know and love today

  • It's preferable to be idealistic since only thinking beyond reality can lead to progress

    Would anyone in 17th century imagine that it's probable to ever go to space. However, in 1964 a human being did strike a cosmic flight. It is due to the people who think outside of the box (outside of reality if you will), that accomplish something grand and truly revolutionary.
