People strive for more and more each and every day. Whether it be something physical like wanting more food, or even something that cannot be touched like happiness or excitement. No matter what, the human race has always striven for more.
However, this only brings up the question, “Why?” Why is it that we as humans strive for more? Why is it that the people of this magnificent world are never content with what they have?
We as humans naturally try to obtain more because we do not want to fall behind in society.
Now, the reasoning behind my conclusion is not just something out of the blue. In fact, I have pondered over numerous ideas for a long time. Thoughts like people wanting to be entertained such as the fans of singers that want more songs, or people wanting to fulfill their needs like being an astronaut or being successful came to mind. However, these ideas were never sufficient enough for me. You could even say that I wanted more.
Personally, I strive for the most I can obtain with everything that I do. Sports, writing, and even eating, you name it and I will try my best at it. Although sometimes I might take too much and put myself in some trouble, the feeling of receiving the most out of something is worth the risk. For example, I strive for recognition. Though I might be sounding shallow, knowing that people will recognize me for my achievements feels exhilarating. The more I obtain, the more I want.
Though my statement might sound selfish, that does not actually make it a negative statement. The want for more is definitely not a bad idea. In fact, I encourage other students to keep striving for more, and after they have obtained their goal, then strive for even more. There is no reason to be content with what you have.
Wanting more is natural for humans, and to be honest, those that are successful in life are people who constantly strive for more. So in order to be successful, the determination to obtain more should be prominent in a person. Want more, obtain more, and eventually, have more.
