I've started to notice more and more how people just want to do the least amount of work possible and they expect to get something amazing in return. As if they are entitled to anything in this life. What happened to the American dream that "if you worked hard enough you could get anything you wanted". It seems to me that the dream has become "you can get anything you wanted". That isn't how life works and if you think life should work that way than you are out of your mind. Hard work is the only way to move forward in this world. Doesn't matter who you are, where you are from or what you look like. If you hit the pavement and sweat and bleed for your work it will pay off.
What's worse is that we now have people who believe that their opinions are the only ones that matter. That they are correct and everyone else is wrong. What happened to being able to have a dialogue with people? My point of view differs from you, doesn't mean that either one of us is wrong just that we view something differently. What is wrong with that? Why do we feel the need to force other people to think like us? Are we that insecure as a society that we need to be coddled like infants.
As a kid I was taught that nothing in this world comes easy. My friends were taught the same thing. What happened to those lessons?
