What would you call a man who would let the world pass him by to pursue a dream, but is not willing to fight for that dream? You would call him a fool, I imagine. But not me, I would call him a high-stakes gambler. The odds are long but they payoff is infinite. Wouldn’t it all be worth it–even if you didn’t win–just to say that you shot for the moon? Sure, maybe you won’t make it, but wouldn’t you rather strive for everything and fail than just settle for something lesser?

Or maybe I am just rationalizing a lifetime of bad decisions; I suppose it is something that a fool would do.
