Where have these gone?
Why do they matter?
What is a standard to you?
How you want to live vs. How do you demand you live?
Example: I want a mansion, a yacht, and a gorgeous model girlfriend that I travel the world with vs. I demand a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and enough money for food and gas each month.
Is there more to it than that? Is it shameful to have material possession included as a standard of living?
Standard = Needs
Needs are relative to the individual. Standards are created and become Needs.
I need to survive vs. I need to thrive.
I need necessities vs. I need necessities and extras.
I need a J-O-B vs. I need to be my own boss and have freedom.
Every person will choose their own set of Needs and Wants. The same drive that tells you that you need to eat today can be the same drive that says you need to take a step towards your ultimate goal today.
