Have a vision? This is what you need.

We all chase a vision: a luxurious life, riches, self-transcendence, and so forth. What stands in our way? What do we lack? Clearly, it ultimately resides with us; our future unfolds from the actions taken, the demeanor embraced, and the outlook viewed. I cannot advocate enough for others to chase the wildest dreams. Despite falling short there is always something tangible to show for your efforts. In the pursuit of everything we dream of, two things are required—confidence and ignorance.

Every decision takes some intellectual realization that this option proved the best or most logical. You, no one else, idealized an outcome in line with your choice. Embrace that confidence. Chase your wildest dreams with the confidence that what you do proves just with what you strive to complete. Stay rooted, holding your head high, and move forward. Understand this dream resulted solely from you and your insight. Chase it.

Next, comes the equally critical complement—ignorance. What works for you may not supplement your family, your network, let alone the majority of people the same way. Does that mean you are wrong? Societal standards are not necessary, despite representing the commonly-accepted practice. Remain ignorant of people who abstain from offering you support, motivation, or anything else needed. Embrace your vision with confidence; proceed with ignorance—deflecting all that is adverse.

“All you need is ignorance and confidence, and the success is sure.” –Mark Twain
