They want it now. It seems that many in my generation think that good things happen overnight. That overnight you will find yourself rich and without cares. The problem is it never happens overnight. It happens after years of toiling and working that eventually you start to reap the fruits of your labor.
It can be viewed like a garden. You till the soil, plant the seeds, continue weeding, and caring for the garden so 4 –5 months later you can start bringing in the harvest of your labors. It does not happen overnight, it does not happen right now, it happens after endless tireless work.
I got one shirt design done this weekend, I have a couple more on the burner that I’m doing the graphic design on. If I make ANYTHING in the next 6 months I’ll be amazed. The goal is a year from now as I build up products people might find interesting that I can sell them something. Not to mention there’s a whole separate branch that I’m eventually going to spin this into. But that’s for another time after I have stuff available for show.
Bottom line is the American Dream is under fire because lazy bums are asking the government to steal the rewards from those who worked to achieve it. I worked my ass off through school, am paying down debts as fast as I can, and I know I have no one to blame for those decisions but myself. Get off your ass and go find a job.
