“I dream a lot about how great it would be to be famous someday, like a movie star or recording artist. I enjoy singing with some of my high school friends, and I think it would be cool to be a celebrity. Is it wrong to think like this?”

“I worry about our grandchildren, because it seems like they have so many more pressures on them than we did when we were young. But I’m not sure their parents even see it this way. Am I right to be concerned?”
“For years I looked forward to my retirement, and I did all the right things to prepare for it financially. Well, I’ve been retired about a year now, and to be honest I’m really bored. I guess money isn’t the whole story, is it?”
