In “Leaving the Cave” by John Artibello, the author describes how people in society now a days lack the importance of life and how they look more at their material self, for example having a new car rather than paying attention to their goals and creating a “perfect society”. The process by which a person may gain “success” is by focusing and setting specific goals, doing the work and finally participating.
Firstly, a person may gain success by focusing on their goals and setting specific goals because that would give a person more encouragement since if you have your mind set to a certain goal then eventually you will work harder and harder to try to achieve that goal. An example of setting a specific goal would include trying to pass a course so you can eventually get a diploma and find a job right after. If you have accomplished your goals then that means that you have gained success and therefore you would see yourself in a “perfect society”.

Since, for example if you’re trying to ace an English test then you would have to actually try hard by doing the homework and all the work in class. Also by not doing the work you will not learn anything and because of that you will most likely fail rather than having to gain success.

An example of this would include if you had a math test next week and there were no notes online then you would most...
