A wise man once said that, “the key to happiness is someone to love, something to do, something to look forward to”. The American dream isn’t one brought into existence by wishing it happened by way of magic. It’s something brought into reality through grit, effort, and raw determination. America is known as the land of gold and opportunity because every citizen is granted the freedom to pursue whatever they believe to be happiness. This premise is so unique that it’s still synonymous with America even today. Indeed, there is no country that cares for the human condition quite like this one. We are unique. Behind every person, there is a dream or a goal that someone longs to bring into reality. The point of this concept isn’t to make people lazy. Far from it. It’s to make people build themselves and everyone else up into prosperity with strong work ethics and patience.
Diligence and Patience in particular are qualities that all people must have in order to strive towards goals. Without them, humanity would never have come as far as it has. The labor of good men and women is only possible with the willingness to work through tedious tasks to get to the endline. The ultimate objective. The goal.
However, it’s important to note that these aren’t easy skills to master. Patience is something that is developed after someone realizes that gradually picking away at a task lets someone work through the finer details of the project until it’s perfect. Diligence is the result of someone being so committed to a task that they focus on it until it’s finished.
When you merge patience and diligence into one, all of your work turns into herculean efforts as you power through marathon-like tasks until they are perfect.
Truly, this is what the American dream is.
Applying yourself in a direction with the sole purpose of making that task, project, or adventure become a reality no matter what it takes. Through patience, diligence, and a direction towards a goal the amount of things that people can get done is limitless. The human capacity for effort knows no bounds because your ability to manipulate creation is limited to your imagination and the work you are willing to put forward to accomplish your vision. It’s the American way. As the Bible says, Seek and you will find, Knock and the door will be open to you.
The American way and the American dream are staples to live by because you are the master of your own reality and you owe it to yourself to conquer life in every way you can. God Bless You. Good Luck!
