As the most of my peers, I have been asking myself a question, what is it really I want out of my life? This question has been bothering many people, and not only the college students who are trying to figure out the path which will lead them to the comfortable life. One might ask, what is that comfort that we all are striving for? Is it a state of mind or is it some unknown world that we are so eager to enter? Well, it varies from person to person, it depends on the life that the person has left behind when the decision to go to college was made. There are several aspects of our lives that could influence us and the future decisions that we'll make. The biggest part of our decision making is the way we were raised and the culture we have got used to. Many Americans believe that the success depends on the family background that you have. There are those who say that if the person was raised in a rich family, all opportunities are available to them and there is a high! chance that the person will live a comfortable life. The same people are saying that if the person was raised in a poor family there are too many obstacles to overcome and most of the time these barriers on the way are too hard to cross. On the other hand, there are those people who say that the America is the land of opportunities and any person could achieve his/her goals if they set their mind to it.

I am honest and do not deceive, cheat or steal. I am reliable; I'll do what I say I'll do and I have the courage to do the right thing. I have built a good reputation and been loyal standing by my friends, family, and my country.

I treat others with respect; I follow the Golden Rule. I am tolerant of differences and I use good manners and refrain from bad language. I show consideration for the feelings of others. I will not threaten, hit or hurt anyone; I deal peacefully with my anger, insults and disagreements.

I always do my best and do what I am supposed to do; perseverance is my key. I practice self-control and self discipline. I consider consequences before acting and know that I am accountable.

Play by the rules; take turns and share. I am open-minded and I listen well to others. I never put the blame on anyone else for my faults.
