The controversy descibes the dilemma faced by many people, especially by those successful people. Everyone may have different ideas on it. Well, to me, I will prefer to set up my own business if possible. But it will be unfair to say one choice is better than the other if we do not see the both sides of the story in the following paragraphs.
For some people, they hold the point of view to buy a house. To them, house is a big big objective why they work for, and by doing so, they will get self-satisfaction and fulfill their taregets. And also, they hold the view that house is an asset they can control on hand, which make them feel very comfortable. What is more, they view house as a kind of investment as well, which they can both enjoy themselves and sell it out years after.
Well for other people, like me, stand on a quite different ground to view the statements. They firmly believe that to set up a business is what their target is, which can bring them challenge, personal satisfaction and professional development. Also, by ranning a business, they also can own money for a house in the near future. They firmly trust that by setting up a business, they will have a more colorful life, though probably be tough at the beginning, than just buy a house.
As to me, I believe that to set up a business is a better choice than the other because it fits me in the following three fields. First of all, I am young enough to get ready for all kinds of challenge, tough, and fun life. Ranning a business is one of the best choices I can have. It provides me all kinds of possibilities to learn, suffer and enjoy things, which surely will help my development in both personal and professional. The second point I want to make here is to own a business is always a dream to me. If it can someday comes true, how can I let it go easily? Last, but not the least, I do not have any urgent willing to change my current house now. Currently due to the heavy work flow, I actually have little time stay at home, it is now more like a sleeping place to me. And I am very satisfied with where I live now, and would like to live here continuously.
Again, I would state that I will own a business rather than buy a house if personal quality is considerated as a criterion to make the decision.
