“Be realistic,” said the principal.

I think Chris Neil is such a great player. Really worth his $1,100,000 per season.
I wish I could get paid that for blogging.

When I was in Grade 3, my teacher asked me what I want to do with my life. I said, "I want to be an author."
"Be realistic," he said.
"OK, I want to be a blogger," I said.

And, so, dreams do come true - for both you and Chris!

You should have said you wanted to be a paid blogger. You weren't specific enough.
