Work For It Some people sit back and think about how good of a life they have, while others are wondering why they are constantly feeling like they are at a disadvantage. This is what Namit Arora, discusses in his essay “What Do We Deserve?” He often thinks to himself, “How much of my good life do I really deserve? Why me and not so many others?” (Arora 87) and what he means by this is, why is it fair that he receives so many rewards in life when others are struggling to pay the bills. Well I completely agree with him; not everyone is going to have the same rewards in their lives because of many different factors including family background, genetics, environment and so on. However, while one might not start off as wealthy or intelligent or as athletic as someone else, it does not mean that they do not have the opportunity to become as great as the people who are more fortunate. So when it comes to the social and economic justice in today’s society, I would come up with a model that allows all people to have equal opportunities to achieve whatever goal they would like to achieve no matter what type of living condition that they are born into. This idea sounds almost identical to the already existing model called the Libertarian model. The Libertarian model is one of which “distributive justice favors a free market with well-defined rules that apply to all” (Arora 87). In other words, all people get the equal chance to work for they want in life. However adding on to this model, I would create programs that help out everyone who is struggling, whether they are rich or poor. This idea is similar to the Meritocratic mode, which is a model that helps out the needy and less fortunate. As one can recognize my new model is somewhat of a mixture between the Libertarian and the Meritocratic, however it is still a little different because instead of the government only helping out the “less fortunate,” they would actually be helping anyone who is willing to take the time

    benefits of hard work. But why is it that some people seem to feel that “hard work” is a dirty word nowadays? I define “hard work” as work that is challenging. Both hard work and “working hard” (i.e. putting in the time required to get the job done) are required for success. A problem occurs when people think of challenging work as painful or uncomfortable. Does challenging work necessarily have to be painful? No, of course not. In fact, a major key to success is to learn to enjoy challenging work AND…

    Hard work will not guarantee you success. Let me explain – the hardest working athletes are not the ones making the most money. The most talented ones in any sport are not often described as being “hard working” The person who is putting in 12 hour days, sweating and plodding along? Getting the job done and earning very little reward? Do people get promoted within the organization on work ethic alone? Isn’t usually because they know someone, have a natural knack for something, have more “education”…

Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works inverse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man).

    Hard Work Never Hurt Anyone I wish there could be a way to relive the first fourteen years of my life in my current situation and in a wealthy situation just to compare the two to see how life would differ.

I could not fit in with them correctly or really have good conversations because what I knew was totally different from what they knew, life was hard. Most of the kids I was going to school with at the time…
