How to achieve the American Dream

Six out of 10 Americans believe the American dream is dead according to a recent poll. And lots of people are talking about how terrible that is. But, what I haven’t seen addressed is that 4 out of 10 Americans believe the American dream is not dead — that it is, in fact, still alive and kicking. And furthermore, although the poll doesn’t tell me one way or the other, I suspect that a good deal of those 4 out of 10 not only believe it’s possible to succeed and be better off than one’s parents, but have done precisely that.

Personally, I like to be on the side of positivity. After all, if you figure the game is impossible to win, you won’t try as hard to do so.

  1. Count me in (finally) in the 4 out of 10 (at this time). It wasn’t easy, worked my way through three college degrees while full time employed. Paid cash for my children’s college degrees so they have no debt. Learned early on to spend much less than I made with an eye towards this future. It’s not how much you make, its how much you spend.

    This article is a good beginning, but the dream should be fiscally responsible, not debt laden.
