Journal summer 9

We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don't want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential.

lauren hill said "You need to wake up from fantasy, and realize reality," because when you're in the fantasy world, you don't think of all the things that can happen, just the things you want to happen. If people realize their full potential, then the world would be a much better and successful place.

i think this is true because people want these fancy things but dont no wat its like to work for it and since they think they dont work they can have anything.and if they dont see their full potential then they might be trying to reach a limit that is no where near their potential wich leading them to fail;

This quote is saying that you must work hard for something nice such as nice apartments, wear fancy clothes, and drive them doptastic cars. It wouldn't be fair for you to get it -snaps finger- just like that...because its actually hard working people who don't get things like that...

I think what this quote is saying is that if you want to drive fancy cars, wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments you need to work really hard to accomplish these things and try your best at what you do in life.

I think this means that everyone should realize that they could achieve whatever they want.If they want a lamborghini and a giant mansion,they should first work for it and after they do they could be the richest man alive(Bill Gates).
