Do you have an Entitlement Mentality?
An entitlement mentality is a state of mind in which an individual comes to believe that privileges are instead rights, and that they are to be expected as a matter of course.
My belief is that the world has experienced an amazing time of growth and economic development over the last fifty plus years. Most people alive in Australia today have not experienced a Depression in the economy. This is a fantastic achievement for the nation and overall a good thing. However there is a down side. This is that people’s expectations have changed.
For the people that experienced the Depression they are grateful for the economic growth. They understand that when things get hard we need to get in and work hard. The depression also developed people that understand that they needed to do what it takes and no one is there to look after you. Though there is some people that still believe that they are responsible for their development and success, there are the others….
These others have what I call entitlement mentality. They believe that they should be looked after. They believe that others are to be blamed when things go wrong and they believe that it is their right to have the government and others to look after them. If this is your belief, I would like you challenge you to empower yourself and know that you have the ability to change your life for the better. You have the power within to be successful and develop.
How you say….. Here is some hints:
- Be grateful for what you have.
- Be willing to do work that you may consider below you.
- Look and take advantage of opportunities to grow and develop yourself.
