What is your pursuit? From time immemorial we are conquerors seeking an inexplicable better way to go further in life. The American Dream symbolizes this pursuit. We are often lured into thinking that the individualistic path to success is more distinguished than the collectivist path; however, we would be better served to adopt the African proverb, “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
The American Dream is an ideology that represents a national ethos, the spirit of a country’s culture, which captures and manifests the greatest of human aspirations and achievements. This ideology establishes and renews hope, that regardless of your plight in life or where you originated from, you can attain the most unimaginable life of success if you work hard, stay committed, and sacrifice. Often, the teachings of gurus, self-help books and success coaches leverage this belief, which is predicated on respecting humble beginnings, dreaming big, and being at the right place at the right time. Yet, getting rich has been evasive and elusive to the masses. Millions of people have gone into debt seeking the blueprint to success, but never grasped that the true secret to realizing your personal American Dream is understanding that every valued area of your life is a key component to cracking the code to riches.
