I came across this interesting commercial that made me anxious but it also made me think a lot about my position in society and the effect of social media on the individuals perspectives. After watching I began to question myself. Am I working as hard as I should to reach the American Dream? But what is the American Dream? From what I saw in the commercial, a big house with a pool, a beautiful family and a dog, a nice car and obviously lots of money and status compose the “American Dream”.
Why does it sound so simple when the man on the screen talks about success? Success should be easy to accomplish when the “formula” is given to you… “You work hard, you create your own luck and you believe everything is possible” well, I’ve been working hard since I can recall, I like to think that I create my own luck by being positive and I believe everything is possible, oh wait! No, I have my doubts about everything being possible because as hard as I work and as much as I like to think everything is possible I yet have not created the luck of achieving the American dream!!
