The issue with many of today’s youth is based off of what they were told be be true early on in their lives- that they can do anything if they’re passionate about it. Gina Barreca, author of “Trying to find your passion? Find a decent job instead”, elaborated on the topic of ambition, mainly on how ambition strongly differs from passion. Early in her article, Barreca states, “We too often tell the impressionable young that if they’re passionate enough about a topic or activity, they’ll be recognized, eventually, for their talents.” When children grow up being told that they can become anything they want, but never hear they they’ll have to work in order to develop into what they want, children grow up feeling entitled, with a poor work ethic.
