Reality is the product of all the conditions of the world in which you operate. Your plans and dreams need to be fashioned with that in mind. Painting your dreamscape without being aware of reality’s landscape will likely result in a serious mismatch, disappointments and even shattered expectations.
Your confidence will take a BIG hit if that happens, and losing confidence is one of the hardest and longest ”injuries” to recover from. Find out first what is real in your world so you can plan realistically and hit the ground running.
Manage your own expectations; no more face plants!
