Thoughts: Equal opportunities and income
I was thinking this to myself yesterday. We’re a spoilt bunch, we as in the people I surround myself with and I guess this could apply to the majority of my followers.
A lot of kids these days grow up in families where they never really had to work to get what they want. How are kids suppose to learn the idea of work = outcome when they’re constantly having their bad habits reinforced by having their parents pay for everything that they need.
Kids who have it hard when they’re young can come out with a strong sense of work ethics. They understand that you need to work for what you want to achieve.
The thing that bothers me is that rich kids generally mostly stay rich, private school education is paid for, exposure to people with better income, social network consists of better people that can help in the future, better education = better job opportunities.
I feel like I really skipped out on that, I was a spoilt kid and my parents paid for a lot of my things if not all. I didn’t have a serious part time job until I was 18.
It’s why I’ve taken up this full time job. It is hard waking up at 5am and opening up the gym. What keeps me going is I know I’m getting money and experience in the fitness industry out of it. It’s also nice to see that there are also so many other people who are dedicated and driven toward certain goals. I see some 60 year old men and women every morning!
Moral of this pointless morning post is, we’re lazy, we don’t understand responsibility or hardship. We have our lives easy.
Take on more jobs, activities, hobbies, do more in your day instead of sitting around and pursue a sense of achievement. These days I come home from a 9 hour shift, go to the gym, go to university, do my university homework and go to sleep knowing that I had done everything I possibly could have in that day and I sleep well knowing that.
Actually I had a nightmare about my car being crushed up.
