Default Ignorance is bliss?

Maybe that's right.

One form of 'depression' is 'grandiosity' aka: illusions of grandeur.

I'm kinda bi-polar I guess. I swing from one to the other. My dad made me feel I could do anything + my mom, the reverse. So, I am a product of those two conflicting messages.

The thing that started this thread was my realizing that it is NOT easy to accomplish what I always thought/ASSUMED would be easy.

A 'where the rubber meets the road' moment.

Where grandiosity meets pragmatism. Where dream meets dirt.

I always went along life thinking, "oh, any time I want to, I can (just quickly) start [insert any number of "FOR-SURE" biz opps here]."

Then, as I finally started to DO/launch some of them, I realized it's not as easy/quick as I had always envisioned.

The bursting of a LONG-held balloon is shattering. It is the sudden elimination of the 'ignorance' you are saying is a good thing.

One can be too stupid to know any better + succeed BECAUSE of that -- but, presumably reality hits in similar ways, because reality is reality -- and, in the final analysis, there's NO getting around it/that. No?
