i think i'm a bit of a idealist i think its better to be happy with what you have rather than breaking your back all your life for something you may never achieve....i think its good to better yourself don't get me wrong...but if your not happy with who you are and what you have to start with you won't find happiness in being rich or having the perfect job or a trophey gf/bf....i'd rather be poor and surrounded by people i love and people that make me happy, than be rich and powerfull and surrounded by people who only like me because of it!!! people say that money makes the world go round but i don't agree.

being idealistic makes you motivated but being realistic makes you be more serious about life and issues
