What do you want in life?
It depends on the individual person. There are those who want a high level of socioeconomic success via education & a flourishing career or even entrepreneurship. They know that having lots of money can afford them myriad opportunities to live a civilized & cultivated lifestyle. They believe that to have a good quality of life, one must have an unlimited flow of money. They feel that money can afford one a better quality of life i.e. safer neighborhoods, excellent education & opportunities for their children, association with higher quality people, & a socioeconomic legacy to leave their children & future generations.
Then there are those who want family. They are of the school that there is nothing like family. They see family as the bulwark against the fluctuations of society. They feel that no matter what hardships & negativity they experience they will have family to back them up. To them, family is all even through poverty, deprivation, & other hardships. They contend that these circumstances are naught because they can get through it with family.
Then there are those who want a good book. They assert that the books helps them to explore worlds that they cannot access. They view books as opening out their imaginations & possibilities. They contend that books broaden their intellectual horizons, helping them view the world in a different way. They feel that books can even change their perspectives on things, even changing to a new paradigm in perspectives.
There are people who want THAT career. To these people, career identifies them. They are that career. They contend that a career adds to their character & makes them who they are. They are the people who believe in doing what they love & are passionate about. They will make the necessary sacrifices in order to attain that career. They are of the school that career makes the person & adds an indefinable quality to life. They maintain that if they don't have THAT career, then their life is wasted & for naught.
