From New York City its Who Wants to be a Millionaire On tonights show we have ten contestants from around America who are trying to get rich quick They dont care about hard work and strong values -- they just want to become Americas newest success story with as little effort as is possible Admittedly if Regis Philbin started the show out like this it could lose its effect but its true people do not want to do work in order to achieve success The way of life today should be called Who Wants to be a Lazy Bum It seems that people today just dont want to put forth the effort necessary to earn their own success As the Sheryl Crow once said All they want to do is have some fun In todays increasingly competitive business and social climate almost everyone has been tempted at one time or another to cut a corner here or there in order to speed things up or make a greater profit So really whats the harm I mean everyone wants some spare time and who wouldnt want a little more money for a little less work Well by trying to continually cut corners or get rich quick we as a society have begun to hurt ourselves Lets take a look at how our shortcuts affect everyone First how taking the fast track can compromise our integrity through cheating or lying Then we need to look at how we have forgotten work ethics and third how taking shortcuts can hurt or even inhibit our creativity and originality First in the world today emphasis is placed on a persons net worth rather than moral values One survey found that people when people were asked who they would like to be they were more likely to choose Bill Gates over the Pope Now we cant blame it on the fact that some people just look bad in big white hats
