I’m a millennial.

A member of the entitled generation.

And something I’ve noticed about my generation is the reason why most of us aren’t where we want to be in life has absolutely nothing to do with lack of desire. It has absolutely nothing to do with a lack of resources or opportunity. And most of the time it also has absolutely nothing to do with lack of effort.

Most of us want to be successful in all aspects of life. Most of us have all the resources we need to be successful & more opportunities than our parents or grandparents could have ever imagined. And most of us appreciate the value of hard work & put it in on the daily.

Yet the reason why most of us aren’t where we want to be is that we are not prepared to make sacrifices. We are not prepared to give up what we currently have for what we truly desire. You want to achieve greatness but you also want to Netflix & Chill every night of the week.

  • You want career progression but you also want to work no more than 40 hours a week & achieve good “work-life balance”.
  • You want financial freedom but you also want to spend every dollar you make on things you don’t need to impress people you don’t like.
  • You want to reach your fitness goals but you also want to cheat on your diet & party every weekend.

Don’t get it twisted, as a millennial myself I’m not immune to this condition of entitlement. I’m not immune to wanting to have my cake and eat it too. I’ve just been so frustrated that I’m not progressing towards my goals on so many occasions that I’ve had no choice but to make sacrifices. And when I’ve made those sacrifices, when I’ve given up the things that my peers haven’t been willing to give up, I’ve progressed.

This post is not about putting any of you down.

It’s about helping you understand that you can literally have anything you want in life. But in order for you to get it, you need to make sacrifices. You need to give up some shit. You need to hurt a little.

It’s about reminding you that in order for you to achieve the level of success that you say you want to achieve, you’re going to have to give up some of the privileges you enjoy along the way.
