No longer do they only entertain us, for many they're seen as role models and national talismans, they're millionaires and celebrities, they have a following more loyal than political parties. Muhammad Ali's protest of the Vietnam War made headlines because of his boxing fame, unfortunately, most athletes don't understand their influence, they kick a ball and live a comfortable life, they don't see the possibilities or they choose not to, because were they to open their mouths and speak on environmental issues or racial unity then the world would surely listen, if they use their voice and wealth for the betterment of society, then the world, especially the younger population, is sure to pay attention and emulate them. That's why I want to become a professional soccer player, not because of the wealth or fame but because of the endless possibilities that they possess when they reach the top, the influence they can have, the influence necessary to transcend cultures and create massive social
Persuasive Argument National Athletes are/are not Paid Too Much The topic, pro athletes are/are not getting paid too much, is a heated argument between people. Have you ever thought about it? Well, an answer that I’m sure would be agreed with is that national athletes are paid way too much money. Some people might say that they deserve what they get, but there really isn’t any supportive reasons for that. People know that doctors and firefighters save lives, while athletes play a game to make money.
However, the perception on whether the professional artists and actors are overpaid or not is still a matter of concern of a majority of people. This essay interprets the brighter and darker sides on the overpayment of actors and professional athletes. Many people have a dream to be famous athletes and movie star in the professional sport and film industry. Different people have a different point of view in sports and media industry. Some of the people think that it is one of easier job that all the people can do.
With money, is everything and anything achievable? In The Great Gatsby, many characters tried to pursue their own idea of true happiness, including Gatsby himself. The one thing these characters all had in common was their immense wealth. However, even with their immense wealth, they were not able to accomplish everything, such as their own happiness. Money is undoubtedly one of the most important factors to human society, but there are still limits on what it can and cannot do.
But there are plenty of people who have difficult and dangerous jobs, and no one is handing them exorbitant sums of money. In my opinion, athletes should dispel the leftover money they have. They have too much money because they are paid exorbitantly, brainwash us, or think they need all the money they have because they could receive a horrible injury. Watching pro players is something I admit I love doing, but they should not be praised as much as they are, we should be giving the credit to where it is
Most believe that the millions they get are earned and well deserved, but not everyone agrees with that also. Some say that it is rare for people to be professional athletes, but honestly we could say that about fireman or policeman to. Athletes also get money from merchandise and commercials they do. Athletes should not be paid so much, because they are not doing an actual job that will better our community. They are being paid this amount of money as if their is nothing else the money can go to.
Many would argue that the American Dream was all about success and money, and if someone had lots of money they achieve the American Dream. Nevertheless, that success and money comes at a price. Many people are caught in between striving for the American Dream and are unable to afford it. The workers in the book are dirty, exploited, poor, and overall miserable. The Valley of Ashes presents a contrast between the rich and poor due to its location.
In many societies, individuals forget the real definition of happiness. Many have the idea that being wealthy and having a high status is a necessity to experience a life that has pleasure, love and joy but in reality, this is an illusion. They neglect the fact that prioritizing wealth and a high social status often brings misery. In “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald and “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant, there is a negative impact on the characters as they allow themselves to become greedy and selfish due to dominance of wealth and stature which results in life changing
In general everyone in society is threatened by their money, they feel helpless against their money. They think money is the most powerful thing you can have. They might also look up to them for the reason of their money. They see the socs as powerful people, and they want to be like them. They want them to be perfect, so they think that and lie to
In today 's society, the American Dream is defined by popularity, how much one is able to capitalize off of anything thrown their way, and the amount of wealth one has accumulated for themselves from it. However, this dream is only available to a select few, causing negative disruptions within our society as a whole and its people individually. The American dream is defined by an everyday citizen this way because in the United States many people feel that in order to get to the dream, they must make rash and overly selfish decisions which lead them down paths of corruption, much like the many powerful, successful people in big business. Although the end goal is to be able to grasp the dream and fulfillment, people come to a point that psychologists refer to as the adaptation level phenomenon. The phenomenon states that humans have the tendency to judge various stimuli and situations relative to those they have previously experienced.
