"Wealth & Success In America"

In our present United States culture and economy, I find it interesting how easily Americans focus on the wrong things. The have-nots in society look at those who have more success or money than they do, and then they resort to complaining about how unfair life is. It's easier to complain and be all "woe is me" than to take action and improve unpleasant conditions. Life is what you make it. If you're not happy with where you are in life, work hard and make it better. Anything is possible so long as you find the motivation to make it happen.

Our country, our economy, our government, our nation's employment situation, there's a lot to hate about those things right now. But the mark of true success is in finding ways to overcome those struggles, and have the willingness to put in an effort, rather than just sit back and complain. Like it or not, that's exactly what the wealthy/successful people have already done.

And I applaud them for that. Well done.

Being wealthy and/or successful is not a crime.
