The American dream and vacations can be intermingled and can be done as work and pleasure, and the best of both worlds.
Vacation with family and friends can have an everlasting impression on all Americans and leave memories that will last a lifetime. The quality time we spend together especially with younger and impressionable children will not go unforgotten.
With all the economic woes that we are facing today and with the economy and uncertainty of what the future holds, we must make an effort to dream big and enjoy life to its fullest.
Most of us can remember with great detail the family vacations that we took as children and the impact it had in shaping our lives and defining the principles and ethics that make up our personality and desires in the later years of our life. These moments are what we call character building memories.
People underestimate the importance of family vacations. We all have met many people who say that they do not vacation because they can’t afford it or that they don’t have time off from work. Well the truth of the matter is that we all need some rest and relaxation from all the hustle and bustle of the daily routine of work and home.
Taking a trip to the smokey mountains or a weekend getaway in a condo at the beach can be invigorating and help get you back to work with a new sense of ambition, so you can plan your next exciting vacation.
The same goes for the American dream, this is something worthwhile that we can work towards and plan for our future. By taking vacations you can experience many things that you would not have ever seen or done, and meet other people and enjoy food from other places and cultures, seeing how they live and learning why they do what they do, in their part of the country or world.
By having more images in our mind of all the possibilities that we may have and the option of obtaining some of these dreams and goals for ourselves someday, will give you the motivation to surpass all expectations that you may have thought to be impossible.
There is no replacement for life experiences that have come your way in real time, and getting the chance to mingle with others that may leave an everlasting impression in your life.
As you may know and agree, that watching someone play golf, or football on T.V. is not the same as being on the golf course or football field and actually doing it. Making a perfect hit on the golf ball off the tee is a feeling like no other. The feeling goes from your hands to the bottom of your feet.
The fact is that after you have done something, you can relate and relive the experiences that you had and making your life more full and complete.
You may have heard the phrase of dangling a carrot in front of your nose and having something that you really want and just can’t reach. This can actually get you farther in life than if you never tried for something that is worthwhile to you. All things are possible if you are willing to set your goals higher than you may think are possible.
Records are meant to be broken and dreams are meant to come true.
Do not be afraid to reach for the stars. Take a vacation periodically,and make time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
To your success and happiness!
