What is '四方' in the end?

Ancient Chinese thought the ground shaped like a huge square with four right angles in which center was the Middle Kingdom.  四 means 'four' and 方 refers to ‘direction’. So 四方 should represent ‘the whole society even world’! 
We have noticed that:Deeply influenced by the traditional national cultural President Xi is a good example to explain the famous saying '好男儿志在四方!" who believes China can not be well developed if without the cooperation with other countries and all people in the globe-village can share the same sweet fruits harvested under the same Sun!The wise leader‘s heart is always beating for all citizens on the horizon line of the Earth whose chest can hold up the Pacific Ocean that I imagine! That is why China is getting more open to the outside and more countries are ready to work with us for construction. The world welcomes the bullet-train from China and feel terrible when seeing the American warships patroling around as ‘police'!

    Certainly all things are relatively right or wrong. How to carry an object is decided by yourself. I feel strange why Korean people joy taking heavy things on the head for transporting. I wonder if the head is painful with a stone on and the neck is strong enough to bear the load?
    I think my proposal is good to train kids to have a nice sense on correct pose of walking or sitting. A straight backbone means much to health and self-confidence.  That helps you set up a shining image before the public.

    Searu, my friend, my earlier comment is questioning your assertion that carrying the school bag from the front is good. I think it is best to carry the bag in the back as nature designed us. We just need to reduce the load. The same load on the front is worse than at the back of the body.
