During a meeting last week, an interesting question arose. I was asked why are people in my generation entitled? Now I know there’s been a lot of talk about some people being snow flakes, some people living in their mom and dad’s basement because they aren’t prepared for the real world. I am not here to harp and or repeat that, when I was asked this question I took a moment to really think about my answer.
My answer was “I don’t know, I don’t understand it either.” I grew up in a humble way, I have zero problem doing what I have to do in order to do what I want in the future. I don’t feel entitled be any means, I want to earn anything and everything in this life of mine. Is it not better when you earn it?
Like I’ve stated before, its about paying your dews. I grew up being told you will pay your dews with hard work and one day you will be granted something better. Other people missed or did not receive this tidbit of wisdom when they were younger. Really that the best answer I have when it comes to this question, not everyone within my generation is selfish and entitled. Sometimes one just needs to look a little harder and you’ll see a hard working millennial paying their dews, waiting for a chance to shine.
