The American Dream, a phrase first coined by James Truslow Adams in 1931, has grown significantly since its inception. The original meaning referred to a “dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to his ability or achievement…” Today, Entrepreneurship seems to be the American Dream. Going deeper, it is the psychological belief that Entrepreneurship provides freedom, sought out by the brave. That’s right, freedom, which in 1814 Francis Scott Key authored the term for America as “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”, which also in 1931 became implemented by the singing of the National Anthem. In today’s world, not many are experiencing freedom. Americans are buried in debt, subject to increased costs of living with stagnant wages, usually at a 9-5 job they can’t stand but have to keep in order to put food on the table and a roof over head. America is faced with three major hurdles as we move forward and they are racism, economic inequality, and gender inequality. It will be through discussion, real life examples, and proactive action to get over these hurdles and give James Truslow Adam’s true meaning of “The American Dream” which underlying definition was not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and recognized by others for that they are.
