Define a particular world you are pursuing. Give your definition to every aspect of it until it is refined as your own perception. Dress yourself accordingly. If people are telling you to get back to reality, remind yourself you are creating your own world that cannot be touched nor screwed with. Create what you have imagined. If something is holding you back, take it a step further or go another way. Do not settle. Do not settle for less. Do not be second best. Do not decide on anything less than what you perceive. Only you can see your vision.
