America promotes itself as though everyone can succeed and all one has to do is go to school, go to college and you will get a job. America promotes itself to the rest of the world the white picket fence dream which they make it seem like it is easily attainable. The real ugly truth in which America does not like to promote to the rest of the world is you have to meet extensive criteria to succeed and you have to have certain characteristics in order to succeed or have a higher chance of sucess.

In America you are expected to promote yourself as successful even if you are not. The American people do not want to talk with you about your problems and they see that as being negative. Yes, they disguise all of this in these abstract terms. The honest truth is it is not rosey as painted.

We always hear about success stories and those who swam but why don't we hear about those and from those who sunk? Why are the reports slanted towards those who succeed?

You only need to drive around and look at the empty shops to see the failure stories.

If you are looking for personal challenge stories, just wait for Obama's next campaign speech. The campaign is very good at bringing in specific people to tailor their message in a more personal way. Good marketing actually.
