So what does it mean to be a millennial in today’s society? Does it mean that I am entitled? Does it mean I have it easy? Does it mean that I will be guaranteed success? Well in short no it does not. Living in the world today means that you have opportunity. Never before has such an abundance of opportunity been so prevalent.
So what opportunities do we have that other generations did not have growing up one might ask? Well the answer to that is both simple and complex. For starters we have this beautiful thing called the internet. Never before has so much information been as readily accessible as it is on the internet. I get it “What does the internet have to do with me James?”. I can already hear the question, before I even post this.
Well this means that there has never been a better time to be ALIVE! One can simply look to an app or the internet to find out whatever information they want! Say you want to know how to make banana pancakes. Look it up and seemingly out of thin air a recipe appears. Sure this is a simple example that we all know but YOU, yes YOU can and should apply this same concept to achieve whatever it is that your trying to achieve.
In short there are so many resources out in the world today for Millennials as well as other generations to use. Tap into your creative side and use them. Times are changing and opportunities exist. But success will not be achieved unless you work towards it.
