When people move to another country, some of them decide to follow the customs of the new country. Others prefer to keep their own customs. Compare these two choices. Which one do you prefer? Support your answer with specific detail.

I prefer to adopt the customs of the new country where I go and live. I believe in the philosophy that: – “When In Rome, Do As the Romans Do” means that when you are visiting a new place, you should try to do as the people do who are from the place. Example: “I can’t eat that.” Reply: “Oh, give it a try. This is merely an arrangement of a few words that makes the country man happy, no harm any way.

People from different places have different ways of acting, so it is important to try to do things the way people do who are from the place that you are visiting. One cannot dictate his rules when he or she is a guest to someone.

Visiting a new country is an opportunity for the one to see a new place, feel new environment, and know new people, new culture, and new customs. In addition one makes new friends and establishes new contacts. This all brings out a novelty in the life that is most pleasing and exciting. So why miss such a golden opportunity?

Also one should never forget that although every change offers a resistance, changes are always for good. Changes are inevitable. Changes are a way of life. One likes it or not changes are bound to be there. Hence one must not only accept the change, rather he or she must welcome them. Not accepting change is like trying to swim against the current that is extremely strenuous and in the process one may drown even.

In conclusion, the best policy in a new country would be to learn and honor their culture and practice their customs.

Is a third-level education necessary for success?

It is very difficult to answer the claim that a person needs a university education to be successful in life because success in life means different things to different people. This essay starts by defining three different ideas of success. Following this, it looks at which types of success are dependent on a university education.

Success in life can be achieved in different ways. Many magazines and television programs tell us that success means having a lot of money, having a fulfilling career, and being powerful. In contrast, most religious and spiritual organizations claim that success means finding spiritual happiness and being at peace with God and with you. Another idea of success focuses on relationships – being surrounded by people who love you and care about you, spending time with family and friends.

A university education can help you achieve some types of success, but it makes little or no difference to whether or not you are successful in other areas of life. Undoubtedly, a university education is essential if you want to have a career in a profession such as law, engineering, teaching, or medicine. However, you do not need a university degree to become a wealthy and powerful movie star, sports star or businessperson. In fact, a university education does not generally enable you to achieve spiritual happiness, or to have successful relationships with family and friends.

In conclusion, there are many facets of success. A university education may help you to achieve professional success in some careers. However, it will not help you to achieve success in other areas of your life such as your spiritual life or your relationships. Hence it is impossible to generalize that third-level education necessary for success.
