Without a job Willy cannot provide for the family and everything he says or does is a lie. He is very insecure about himself, lying to himself and his family makes him feel better. Willy tends to hide his anxiety with being cocky and arrogant. Instead of searching for another job he conti... ... middle of paper ... ...appy, and Linda but they came after himself. Willy Loman said he had one of the best vehicles; the vehicle came with a lot of problems that he could not afford without a job.
He leads his sons to believe the same ludicrous keys to success, pointing them in the same direction of failure. Everyone but Willy sees fault in his judgement as “his old friends, the old buyers that loved him so and alwaysfound some order to hand him in a pinch -- they’re all dead, retired” (Miller 32). With these factors counting against him, Willy still has not realized his life is at a standstill, not moving at all and he’s failing. His entire life he’d depended on the help of other people. Although he wants his sons to live a successful life, he’s teaching them the wrong points of gaining that particular lifestyle.
Willy is jealous of Charley’s wealth, yet he tries to help him out by offering him a job and giving him loans every week. Charlie is more realistic about the success and that it comes with hard work. He doesn’t like Willy because their views on success and how to gain them are different. That is shown between how they teach their son’s, as Charley wants his son, Bernard, to be smart in order to be successful. Unlike Willy wanting Biff to be charismatic to get through life and have more opportunities (Miller Act
In reflection of his career with the Wagner Company, many other problems arose that forced economic difficulties on him and his family. He was determined to live by ideals that placed him above everyone else. It was with these lies and illusions that Willy's life began to lose its' air of
Happy, unfortunately, has similar traits of his father, especially in the myth of the American Dream. He is delusional in this respect. Miller’s play reflects that not all of America’s citizens are able to participate in her prosperity, but that there are other important personal accomplishments such as value for oneself and family. Willy was blind to everything except his personal failures, which helped to hinder and undermine a healthy response to life challenges.
Yet, his strive for success is what leads him to put a gap between him and his family. “Because he is focused on financial success, he often ignores the more important things in life. It is clear that Willy truly loves his family, although he is very misguided.” (Schultz). It can be seen that Willy loves his family, but the constant love for money overshadows his thoughts which leads him into a bad relationship with his family. This love for money is also what leads him to his death as Angela Schultz points out.
They are always trying to do better; get a better job, find a better house and even better themselves. The men I this category may have often suffered from a former addition or even a current one and now they are working on themselves. They spend so much time trying to make their life better, so they can be a good father that they lose sight of why they are changing in the first place. They break promises, other things get in the way and they just never show up; physically or emotionally. This is the most frustrating kind of absentee father, because there is false hope.
Happiness is not what everyone encounters in their life, to meet happiness a person must make sure the world always takes their side and always supports them in every decision they make. Trying to make everyone happy is not going to happen so quickly, many people are never satisfied even when a person breaks their neck to try to make them happy. In a family business no matter how hard you work to make sure your uncle or your aunt’s small business is the best in town, they will always want more. The top man is always expecting more and more work from you. When a person thinks they did so much work that no more could be done, that is the point when “the boss” demands more.
3 signs that your personal life may be affecting your business. Striking the perfect balance between your personal life and business is always tasking. A lot of entrepreneurs are family people, and this often leaves one aspect of their lives wanting. In most cases, there is a deficit in one of these categories; the business or family life. A lot of businessmen complain about not having enough time for their families, while a lot of family men also complain of not having time to put into the business.
He also sees his son in his eyes go from a star football player to a lazy bum. When Willy looks back and sees this he thinks he has failed his son because to him Biff has no drive and self-urgency. Willy although in his delusion of life thinks he has lived the “American Dream” and succeed he has greatly mistaken. Though he does try very hard to do what in his mind is right. Even though his family might not be provided for after he is gone he has been able to give them an ok life.
