Hi everyone, I hope you are doing great or perhaps better than the day before. Today, am going to point out some of the things I have in mind and particularly those that explain why you should be able to make something happen in America. Don’t get me wrong, you might give an argument against it or for another nation and I respect your opinion.
Most of us have read, heard or experienced the wildly known American Dream and honestly, sometimes it turns out to be a totally different animal to face on your own. Whether you are an American or not, I am going to share some of my own reasons why you should make it in America and I will repeat, they are my opinions and so, read them at your own risk (although there is no obvious danger resulting from it).
- If you are the kind of foreigner that knows little about it, well, you are in for a treat. I definitely do not want to sound like some kind of a traitor or sissy for saying this but I will say it anyway. Most of us are not looking for freebies, and that is definitely the spirit you need if you want to achieve something anywhere on earth. If you sit on the couch watching the Jersey Shore on television, then you are just taking the world back. If you get off your couch, you can do something worth doing.
- Quite often, I hear people complain about how there are no jobs and stuff like that. Really? You see, when you don’t have a job to do, make it a full time job to look for one. What about that huh? That is why America is a place where you can start from nowhere and end up somewhere. If you loose your job today, seriously search for a new one, you will find it. I am not just giving empty praises here, after all, no one pays me to say this.
- Obviously there are other stumbling blocks to success, and that is independent of where you are. Sometimes, it is the governments and other times, yourself. Consider someone who knows very well that he or she is not ready to buy a house yet. Instead of waiting a little more, he/she jumps straight to it without thinking. When the banks come knocking at the door for mortgage default, then they start realizing that they made the wrong decision in the first place. American dream gone awry. Think first. Save, then spend!
- Look around, if you find another place that pays Software Engineers the highest salary in the world, call me maybe, and I will see what we can do about it. Trust me on this one, I know the rent is so darn high but still worth it. If you work hard, just hard enough not to kill yourself, you will succeed. That is why I truly believe in hard-work.
- I am not saying everybody should pack their bags and fly to the States. No. Maybe my message is not even meant for those who are not here. Maybe it is meant for my neighbors, or for myself.<3. In simple words, sometimes we overlook what we already have around us. We often look far away for what we think we need and yet we could as well look into ourselves and see how surrounded by possibilities and opportunities we are. No one will force you to work hard. No one will change how you view things. You can only be the change you dream of.
- Finally, I must say this with a fervent heart, that we all have a role to play in this world. What is your role? (Shakespeare: ‘The world is a stage……’). If we keep blaming others for our failures, how will that help us make it anywhere? If we cannot make it here, how can we make it anywhere else? Think about how fortunate you are and then do something about it. Exeunt.
I really don’t like writing too much. I should definitely stop here. I hope you have a great day, a day filled with insight and hope. A day like no other. A better view and perspective of tomorrow. You know that you own your destiny, defend it. Goodbye.
