National symbols, colours, and pass times are definitions applied to Canadians. They provide a sense of national identity in order to create a cohesive sense of what Canadian is and what it means. While these symbols serve to unify us as Canadians they fail to encompass the diverse lenses through which Canadians see the world. While all Canadians stand under a banner of red, some stand under mountains, other’s sky scrapers, and some near the sea. Each Canadian’s experience creates a diverse set of values and beliefs that serve to make Canada stronger in its ability to relate and coexist. Canada is countless things to all of its residents and that is what unifies us all as Canadian citizens – our strength found in diversity and understanding.
Success at a Young Age
Success is viewed as a linear progression towards a goal of fruition over time. It is given a quantity to which few know the formula and even less seem able to share. Each successful person seems to have met their success in a completely different way which none are able to relate in a fashion easy to follow. Perhaps this is due to an altered vision of success. This altered vision is not something that is meant to come with age or time however, it comes through seeking personal growth and understanding. Each person has the means to create and maintain success in their lives if only their version of success is altered to match their own personal goals and beliefs. Success is not a question of time spent working towards a socially provided goal of means or attainment. Success is continually striving towards one’s goals in a completely personal and satisfying way.
Canada is filled with a myriad of cultural backgrounds, ancestry, and global histories. Under the heading of Mosaic, Canada has, over time, become a meeting ground in diversity of which everyone has become a participant. Amongst Canadians stories of home cross oceans, deserts, and mountains. Yet with all of these blended histories and cultural values we all represent the true definition of Canadian. It is our differences, our multicultural heritage, which allows us to call ourselves Canadian. It is the definition of how our country came to be and the very thing that we need to celebrate most in order to prosper as a multicultural nation.
