In the novel, Jay Gatsby is a wealthy man that came from nothing to being the most wealthy man known in the City of New York and nobody know how he got this rich. As Nick And Gatsby drive into New York City for lunch Nick says, “Anything can happen now that we’ve slid over this bridge,’ I thought; ‘anything at all….’Even Gatsby could happen, without any particular wonder. The Ability of Gatsby to achieve this seems limitless to Nick because Gatsby didn’t come from a wealthy family, he worked hard to get where he is now because of his determination and as nick says it’s impossible to get rich in New York without a wealthy family it’s only possible in United States that shows that you shouldn’t give up because nothing is easy you have to do the impossible until you achieved what you wanted and that’s what Jay gatsby did.

Gatsby was in love with a girl named Daisy, Gatsby couldn’t be with Daisy because he was poor and couldn’t afford the lifestyle daisey wanted. Nick observes Gatsby standing on his dock and “He stretched out his arms toward the dark water…I….distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away…When I looked once more for Gatsby he had vanished….”. The light represents Daisy and how Gatsby lost her because he was poor but now that he is a wealthy man, Gatsby wants Daisy back and wants to repeat the past because they loved each other. Daisy promised Gatsby that she will wait for him because he was in war but then Daisy sent a letter saying that she had married Tom. Gatsby came from nothing to being the wealthiest man around and that’s because he was determined to get Daisy’s heart.

In conclusion Fitzgerald in the novel shows how Gatsby became poor to wealth and how it not easy to become rich overnight, Gatsby worked hard and was determined to succeed even if it didn’t look possible.
