      The American Dream: A white picket fence, 2.4 kids, and a nice puppy dog? No! The American Dream is that each one of us gets our own dream. Big dreams. Small dreams. Crazy dreams. But here's the thing: It's not just about where your dreams take you; it's about where you take your dreams.
  2. (idiomatic) A philosophy that with perseverance, courage and determination, anyone can prosper and achieve success.
