What is the biggest problem young Americans face today? It’s not war, diabetes, or too much time in front of the TV.
It is the abundance of opportunity.
We don’t lack opportunity in America; we lack the ability to know how to decide what’s the best opportunity for us and to feel secure that we picked the right one. There is too much to choose!
The feeling of wanting to do everything and not accomplishing anything is plaguing our generation. The curse of the Kardashians who have their own TV show, clothing line, music albums, millions in the bank, and access to the best parties in the world gives hope to many Millennials that they, too, can do the same.
I am not saying you can’t have everything one day. However, we are trying to have everything at the beginning. The Greats all focused and did one thing. They focused and accomplished one thing and became the best at it. From Steve Jobs to Lebron James, from Oprah to Ellen, they all focused and became the best in their industry. It led them to have anything and everything they wanted.
How do you pick one thing when you are offered and have the ability to do so many? This is a major problem because it causes lack of focus, depression, and does not produce the most innovative, creative or helpful products.
Americans don’t lack opportunity; they lack the focus and ability to decide what door of opportunity to walk through. Agree or disagree? What do you think is the biggest problem young American face? As always…
