There is a reason why many young people can not find their way today, find their true passion and/or most importantly know who they are; Is not to blame nor to point fingers, however adults and this high-paced world are giving less time to meditate to the young generation.
1. Why can’t we live in a world of equity and similar rights?
2. Who decided that America is the land of the dreams?
3. And why do people from all over the world believe in the American dream?
Actually this is quite easy to answer.
If you believe in chances and most importantly if you believe that you have what it takes to be what you want to be and willing to fight until you get it; you will be able to understand the “American Way”
Why do people hate Americans? – because they speak what’s in their mind and don’t let anyone mess with their ideals or goals, one of the things that amazes the most is, they don’t care if they are 25 or 35 to start studying for a GED or change majors or transfer to a different industry; in which in other cases such as in East Asia they look at you as if what F&&*k are you doing? You’re life is over; In America NOTHING is over until you die, another reason why YoungER Generations cannot concentrate.
In America they give you a lot of options, Music, Law, Engineering, History among others or the newest trend become a Lawyer-engineer, get your GED and Associates in less than 2 years, study Journalism and Business Administration and earn your Bachelor’s in 3 years!. This trend is not only confusing people but making them stupider, they are not making their life easier just because there was actually a person who didn’t know if he wanted to study Journalism or Business Administration, furthermore they are not focusing as they used to because is not possible with all these selective courses you may choose from. That is why you see people with 2 or 3 even 4 master degrees.
In my case I decided 7 years ago with my mother’s help to discover who am I and what would I like to leave this world after passing away by going to Leadership programs, Neuro-linguistic Programming classes, Psychology, International Education courses etc. and what I learnt from this was that people usually focus on what is possible for them to understand: “Don’t give up”, “Keep Trying” but don’t give up on something that was set as your dream or is it really what you’re fighting for your true desire?
How do you we try to understand ourselves? – easy, by eliminating distractions and focusing on only you and no one else; in other words I ask to myself every morning a simple question such as What’s your favorite color? – White, is it? Or is it that only today is my favorite color?
Being able to understand yourself and what you go through might be seen as an Herculean task but why don’t give us some 30 minutes a day to answer simple questions; we spend nearly 5 hours a day on our personal computer and T.V
