1195 Words 5 Pages
In American culture, achieving the American Dream involved pulling yourself up by your bootstraps and working hard to reach your goals and dreams. It often lead to you being free of financial worries, obtaining a nice house and cars, and retiring with a nice sum of money to live out your life in comfortable and stability. Work is essential for achieving this dream. You have to do it, whether you like it or not, to earn a livelihood and/or to support your family. Essentially, it is our responsibility to work because it directly affects your life. We are a society always on the fast lane. However, I don 't believe in this modern notion that one must toil away at a 9 to 5 job to live a good life. I believe that to live a good life, one must strive for happiness and to do that means having the free time to experience it all.
