S:0093 Distinction: Possibility vs. Pipedream

(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)

 

When you are open to possibility, you are inspired to innovate, create, and shift paradigms. It’s a choice.

People who have pipedreams are not OK with the present and they are needy for something more than they have. In other words they feel “less-than” and the pipedream gives them enough to make life worth living.

You know it’s a possibility when it’s fun and you can’t lose; it’s a pipedream when you’re hurt if it doesn’t work out.
