RE: How Delusional People Can "Dig The Gold out of Dirt"

Hi @looftee hope you are well.

I don't understand the word "delusional" here:

People who achieve success are delusional, but realistic. The right amount of delusion can help you achieve all your dreams. Being delusional means you are above average and everyone around you feels that you are unrealistic.

characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder.
"hospitalization for schizophrenia and delusional paranoia"
based on or having faulty judgement; mistaken.
"their delusional belief in the project's merits never wavers"

Sorry, but I don't understand...

I agree that self-talk is important

need to have lots of repetition of self talk. Positive self talk, to build your inner confidence. To make your core strong.

As a Christian we use bible verses in our self-talk e.g. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
Thank you for writing.

If you have time check this out, just want to share with you.



Ahh, actually I meant to infer that when people around you have a different mindset, you seem to be delusional to them.

Like everyone around me wants a government job. A safe career. They consider doing something on your own vary risky. And someday, you will run out of money, will be in a bad position.

But I consider those people chicken. In life, the more risks you take, and the more skills you have, the more you will be rewarded.

I mean, you only live once. So, if you pick up only one below average thing, and want to do it for the rest of your life, not because you love it, but because it pays money. I think it's not the best way to spend your life.

So, that's what I meant by delusional. The dictionary meaning of it may not be right to use here. But I felt that it was the best word to use here.

Since I was a kid, I always wanted to be self emplyed. But all my friends and family are employed. So, they kind of consider me delusional to think that I can do it for the rest of my life.😅

Oooh ok now I understand. You will make it, you started to believe in yourself.
Have a blessed Sunday.
