Lifestyle: Redefining the American Dream

The American Dream as we know it has taken a beating. For many, a good secure job and the hope for a big beautiful house equipped with all of the trimmings has all but been left in the dust. While a more promising future may be on the horizon, there are lessons to be learned today.

Hard work, commitment and an intense drive to get ahead are all key ingredients to success but sometimes fall short. Living large now will not lead to a carefree future and retirement.

Despite the obstacles, we all have some say as to our destiny. By living within our means and appreciating what we do have, we can create a fulfilling lifestyle. It may take a little ingenuity but is well within our grasp.

For the vast majority, a house will by far be the largest investment of a lifetime. The old adage that “less is more” certainly applies. By simply cleaning out the clutter, a home will suddenly feel less crowded. Go a step further by using smart storage solutions to organize the remaining contents and that same house will feel even more spacious. Perhaps the answer has never been bigger and better.

By simplifying the home front, more time can be devoted to more worthwhile pursuits. Shackled by debt and worry will never put anyone on the road to the Promised Land. The freedom to become all we can be may have been the American Dream all along but we just got a little lost in all of the material stuff to realize that we were already in reach of grabbing the brass ring.
