It’s an EASY life. We’ve never had it SO good, and that’s a BIG problem.
As a society we may go through stages of ‘relative’ hardship like high inflation, unemployment or even the odd Pandemic. But you’d find it hard to argue convincingly with older generations, that life is now not ‘easier’ than EVER before.
But is the easy life actually something to celebrate or a recipe for disaster? Has the comfort of modern living made the vast majority SOFT? Incapable of facing challenge or discomfort, the essential components of progress.
Is it responsible for creating generations of ‘adult’- children. Childlike adults, unable to accept any responsibility or accountability for their actions. Lacking self motivation for anything meaningful.
Never truly setting themselves free from the endless provision of safety nets they demand, and which are made too readily available. Unable to demonstrate the type of characteristics required to live a life of real purpose, to set an inspirational example or lead those around them.
Worse still, these Adult-Children lack many basic and essential life skills because their environments are so soft. Environments that demand little or no resourcefulness in order for its occupants to exist.
It’s a slippery slope. Each generation will demand and expect MORE comfort and ease in their world and the problem will inevitably worsen.
Is there a solution? The only way is to be aware of the problem and lead by example to those around us.
REFUSE to be drawn in to the COMFORT ZONE. Seek and THRIVE on challenge and accountability. Know your values and demonstrate them in everything you do. Show that the ‘easy’ way isn’t usually the BEST way by your actions and not just words. Live a life where you seek self improvement and pursue your REAL potential.
Surely that’s way more rewarding than a relentless obsession and search for ease and comfort.
