Reality versus dreams

It's easy to be disappointed that something didn't turn out as expected. It's even easier to be the critic and tell people what they should have done to avoid whatever happened.

Personally, I believe that we have to look at reality and not dreams when we are less than thrilled with what has happened.

Is what happened the worst thing imaginable?
Is it actually better than what logically could have happened?
Is it merely a timing issue and you weren't expecting this to happen this soon?
Is there a way to learn from this and turn this into a positive?

Dreams are great, but they usually remain dreams. Reality is all around us. Better to focus on how to maximize reality than to wait on dreams.
