Everyone who moved there would be given a chance to live a great life, and because new settlers would be given 164 acres of land, a mass movement of people started, mostly from Europe. The American Dream is mostly about that everyone has the same chances of freedom, prosperity and success.

This, led to his ability to be adaptive overcoming a speech impediment therefore exhibiting his change management traits.

The Great Awakening was a time when powerful enthusiastic preachers travelled from one town to another, giving emotion-packed sermons which had touched listeners extremely. On the other hand, American colonies held them back by depending on England to their further survival. Still, religion had a greater encouragement on English colonization in North America. The main aim of this was bringing America closer to becoming an independent state. In North America religion had a greater impact than economy.
In 1630 layman John Winthrop wrote a sermon alluding to America as "a city upon a hill," explicitly linking the New World to the Sermon on the Mount”(meacham 2) He speaks about how the american dream is a complete desire on how the world should be shaped. He conveys his information very well with a strong lead in sentence and backs it up with even more proof. As meacham goes in his chronological order his information improved and has stronger lead in sentences and is more convincing.

Part of the incentive to discover and inhabit North America came from men like George Peckham and Richard Hakluyt who penned long persuasive pleas/advertisements that would occasionally urge the monarchy and the affluent to back English exploration and colonisation. Hakluyt, in his ‘Discourse of Western Planting’, tries to convince the then queen, Elizabeth I, that voyages to this new continent will bring many benefits. “that this western voyage will yield unto us all the commodities of Europe, Africa, and Asia as far as we were want to travel and supply the wants of all our decayed trades.” “This enterprise will be for the manifold employment of numbers of idle men, and for breeding of many sufficient and for utterance of the great quantity of the commodities of our Realm.” While many of these colonies were unsuccessful, even disastrous, most notably Roanoke under Walter Raleigh, The French, and Spanish suffered similar setbacks such as fort Caroline and the Ajacán mission. Eventually, with colonies such as Jamestown, Plymouth, and the discovery of the Hudson Strait provided enough testimony that these expeditions were worthwhile, and Britain was starting to conduct them effectively, colonies such as these would ultimately become the bedrock for the empire’s crowning achievement, British America. “The
This led to scarce resources, and seeing opportunity in North America to run away from famine, job scarcity, government and social constraints, the US provided a fertile land for Europeans to land. During this time, North America provided a satisfying condition for the occurrence of the transatlantic migration. By 1815, peace had returned to the Atlantic region that aided the migration that would last up to 1914 uninterrupted. Moreover, there were pull factors for these Europeans to want to settle in the US during that time. The US had unlimited freedom where everyone had the freedom to practice anything that he desired.

Over the course of time, new settlers from other countries such as in Asia or Europe came to other places seeking fortune, slaves, and many more. For example, the British colonists wanted to make an empire because of profitable trade, competition within Europe, and religion. They were very determined in building a successful empire, and they succeeded.
