I had been working for my employer for almost five years now and I had seen some changes in the attitudes of younger people.
It seemed like they were a lot less willing to put in the effort and give things a real fight than my generation did.
They have a totally different mindset
I had grown up with the idea that hard work and dedication would be rewarded, but it seemed like the younger generation was not willing to put in the same level of effort.
My employer had noticed this trend as well and expressed his opinion that young people nowaday give up without giving a real fight.
He believed that the younger generation was too entitled and not willing to put in the hard work that it takes to achieve success.
It was a topic of conversation that we had a few times and I could sense his anger and frustration at the lack of dedication and commitment that he saw in the workplace.
I had to admit that my employer had a point. I had seen younger employees come in and expect to be handed success without putting in the effort.
I had seen some people give up after only a few weeks or months of work because they weren’t getting the results they wanted.
It was disheartening to see, but it was a reality that I had to face.
Tried to motivate the younger generation but failed
I decided to take it upon myself to try and change this trend. I started talking to the younger employees and letting them know that hard work and dedication were essential for success.
I also tried to be a good role model and show them that it was possible to achieve success through hard work and perseverance.
Unfortunately, my efforts seemed to be in vain. Despite my attempts to inspire and motivate the younger generation, they still seemed to give up without putting in a real fight.
I could not understand why they were so unwilling to put in the effort and work hard. I felt like I was doing all I could to show them what it takes to be successful, but it seemed like my words were falling on deaf ears.
Eventually, I had to face the fact that my employer was right. Young people nowadays give up without giving a real fight and it is a sad reality that I have to accept.
I still hope that one day I can help to change this trend and inspire the younger generation to have a better work ethic, but for now, it seems like an uphill battle.
