When it came to family life, to say they struggled is an understatement.

The act of ownership has the power to completely take over one’s sense of self and identity. More specifically, in today’s society, people have become so consumed with wanting to own certain tangible and intangible aspects in order to portray themselves in their desired persona. This idea of ownership can truly be seen in the materialistic behaviors within the majority of the society.

Gladwell also made a point that the place you are from, your background, and culture has a lot to do with your success. My point of view on this could go either way because there is an equal amount of things I agree and disagree with. There are many people on this world who were just plain out born successful. Either someone they know or their family were very rich. I believe this is how most people are indeed doing very well, but they still need to apply themselves in some way.

Many Europeans were negatively impacted because they did not know how to live in the New World, but once they got the hang of that they thrived.
