Being delusional or referring to one’s delusions generally is part of a negative assessment, or puts things into a negative context. “Delusions of grandeur” is one manifestation of a negative characterization.

But it can be a good thing if you believe it enough, for long enough. “Delusions of grandeur” is another way of saying a person has confidence. Confidence, within reason, is generally helpful. What about delusions of a better life, career, relationship?

Sure, there are extremes we wouldn’t want to go to, and it’s probably not wise to get too disconnected from reality for too long, but give delusion a chance and it can help take you to new heights. Believe it can happen. That and love are the antidotes to the fear.
