    Not impressive IMO. He seems to have misunderstanding of life.

    Aim for the heavens, you'll land in the stars.. same message.. It's a very good message. If you aim for mediocre you will land in the gutter.. no big mystery there..

    1) But there's more than making and achieving aims.
    2) Idealistic people tend to get done more things but they also likely to be unhappy

    Saying that, you would only see those kind of advices in How to be Successful books .. far away from being realistic.
