Who is in the entitled generation? If you live are reading this, you might be apart of it.
Before you get mad take it with a grain of salt. I am also apart of the entitled generation. Heck, we all are.
How can I say that, you ask?
Easy, look around and you’ll see that 9 of 10 conversation are about money, advancements in career, life style, cars, jewels, big homes, expensive clothes and our weekends.
There is nothing wrong with wanting more out of life.
Entitlement is about ego. Feeling that your deserve more than someone else even thought you may have not worked as hard as the next guy or gal.
5 Reason We The Entitled Generation Class Is Growing
Before I give you the 5 reason here is a podcast you can listen to from UsingYourPower.com which expands on this article:
We are told to go to school, get a job or start a business, buy a home and get the most out of life before we die.
If you have to step on a few people that’s ok, you got to get your. It’s a dog eat dog world, right?
If you believe that, then you are apart of the entitled generation.
Many people believe if they can gain control over others they will have more than others.
Sure, if you’re an employee your boss has “control” over you. If you are a boss don’t forget your customer has “control” over you.
Be humble not arrogant and understand we all need each other to succeed in business and in personal life.
If you are reading this blog article, you are most likely on some kind of social media platform.
And if you are part of the public that does not use social media for business but pleasure, you may be apart of the entitled generation.
Why do I say that?
Most people, including myself, post on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and other platforms in hopes that it will reach a million people.
Perhaps someone important will notice our talent and we will become the next Justin Bieber. Yeah, he was a YouTube sensation.
We hear about it all the time and we are lead to believe that if we post on social media we to can become famous.
Most of us are playing the lottery with social media and forgetting that it takes hard work, time and dedication to become an over night sensation.
In January 2017, the unemployment rate in Canada was 6.8%. In the United States that number was 4.9%, in June 2016.
According to Statisticbrain.com, almost 68 million people in the United States were on welfare in 2016. In Canada, the rates would be comparable based on population percentages.
Many people feel they do not need to work. They can sit at home and collect a check from the government.
Sure we all fall on hard times and we need government assistance to get back on our feet. My family needed it twice when I was a child living in Montreal.
But my parents worked hard through the recession and did what it took to get off the assistance and back on their feet.
Unfortunately many people believe in the government handout.
Work Harder Than Others
You are entitled to work harder than others without stepping on anyone.
There are countless stories of people who work hard, went to-night school, got an education and are now doing well for themselves.
That’s the so-called, “American Dream.” The right to make something of yourself.
This is a something more people in society need to understand. We are allowed to be better than we are today. We need to use ability to become more.
Hard and smart work does pay off.
In many parts of the world an education is something we are entitled to. Unfortunately many people take education for granted.
In other parts of the world, people wish they could get an education and leave the circumstances they live in.
If you have the ability to take continued education classes with work or on your personal time do so. But have a plan. Do not become the 50-year-old student who has been in school for 30 years working on their 10th degree.
Even if you are not able to go to school and get an education our parents may be able to teach us lessons we can carry throughout our life.
This is my conclusion of why we have an entitlement complex in North America and other parts of the world.
We the people have been lead to believe that if we do the least amount of work we can have everything in life.
Sure that could be true for a small percentage of the world but do not take your chances.
You are the entitled generation. You have the right to get everything you work hard for. Will you squander your opportunity or will you take advantage of what is in front of you.
Will you live a life that includes other people or will you be selfish and live a life where you are the actor, director and only person watching your personal life story?
