Help me think of ideas for my essay?

My thesis statement for my synthesis essay to connect The Grapes of Wrath, The Great Gatsby and The Death of a Salesman is "It is impossible to maintain honor and also achieve success." Could anybody give me any ideas for my 3 body paragraphs I'm having trouble of thinking of which direction to go in. I was thinking of qualifying and having my 3 main ideas be that 1) false hope gets in the way of the American Dream. 2) the illusion of success causes humans to act selfishly to get what they want 3) that you can only be truly successful if you realize what you havecould you give me your feedback and let me know if you think these ideas would work or if you know of any examples i could use? Thank you so much
