Was the 1800's American Dream a realistic goal?
Answer I think it was very realistic and still is because success is attainable with hardwork and determination.
A realistic goal is something that you want to achieve and which you have a good chance of being able to achieve. For example, if you are overweight and want to lose two stone, while staying healthy, it is a realistic goal to lose one or two pounds a week. It is an unrealistic goal to lose three or four pounds a week.
