People who have adopted western way of life blindly, have always regretted.
Because they have adopted only the decadent things.
Smoking, drinking, partying, raving, illicit sex, loose fashion doesn't make one western.
Learn time management, learn to take care of your body, learn peak performance, efficiency, constant self-improvement, endless striving, self assertion, confidence in your self - worth and creativity from the West. And most of all, learn discipline, learn to honour your commitments and live for your dreams. That's what the Americans call, "the American dream" where everyone gets a chance provided if he/she is willing to put in the hard work necessary for it and hold nothing back. Everybody is a star, they say. Because each one of us is truly, purely, really made up of Star dust. Pure master-pieces and handiworks of pure potential we all are. God made you perfect, babe!
Either we'll find a way or make one.
A true westerner doesn't give up - throw any amount of punches, if you will. Be like them.
