Berta was brought up believing in the American Dream: work hard, be successful, make money, buy stuff. And she HAS worked hard at it. She has the lifestyle and the expensive goodies to prove it. She's in the "1%." So why isn't she proud of herself? Where's the self-esteem that should have come with all this "success"? What is she doing wrong?
Happily, she finds out.
Most of us were taught that the American Dream and the "pursuit of happiness" are the same thing. But are they?
Berta has worked hard, followed the rules, and made a "success" of herself. She has the lifestyle and the expensive goodies to prove it. She's in the "1%." So why isn't she proud of herself? Where's the self-esteem that should have come with all this "success"? What is she doing wrong?
Soul-searching, introspection - and a little serendipity - lead Berta to the conclusion that she needs to redefine some of the terms she has been using to describe her motivation, her path, and her ultimate goals.
This is a simple story, easy and quick to read. But don't let that fool you. Its message is life-changing.
