In our American Society we glorify success as expensice cars, clothes, and other meaningless possessions. As much as these items are interesting and appealing, they hold no real value. Not only are they worthless but their not what’s truly important. The generations before us centered their time and energy on providing for their families and saving for a rainy day. It appears to me that along the way we as a population, lost sight of our values and what’s important. The problem with our current lifestyle is that it is unsustainable. To much of the population doesn’t center their time providing for themselves. That causes them to rely on the government to provide for them. The government in return takes from those that are responsible for themselves.
Success isn’t the best fashion or the most expensive car. Success is what you make it. Personal success for me is freedom and comfort. Freedom from the demands of a job. Comfort to live, spend, and enjoy my life without barriers. On average a person spends 40 hours of their time at a job working for someone else. This time does not include transportation time, break time, and the stress that comes along with their job. Those hours that turn into days, that graduate into years, can never be replaced. Your time should not be bought off with an hourly wage. The sooner we notice the truth, the sooner we set our selves free from the slavery of a job.
