In conclusion, the modern (and inaccurate) definition of success, and the unattainability that comes with it has only given an entire generation the false notion that they have failed in all aspects of life. However, once someone realizes that success is the result of what makes them feel fulfilled, and not what others think should satisfy them, they might just realize that they

A miniscule statistic of Americans are born with the tools and advantages to provide an increased likelihood of success and achievement. However, the vast majority of successful people had to attain not only the ambition, but also the desire to manage a life full of success and prosperity.

Sacrificing their individuality and creativity is just a step in the right direction towards their version of success. Even though sacricinfing one’s true self is great, they are willing to do so if it brings them profit in their own lives. Ultimately, the selfish need for success outweighs the corruption and negativity it brings to the overall system, and in that respect, restricts itself from progressing towards change. Because a generic system like a college can not cater to every individual, there are always concrete flaws, one of which is the pressure to confrom.

Gen-Xers appreciate autonomy; they want their managers to inform them of the required goals and the available resources and then to leave them to function independently (Farag et al., 2009). Generation Xers are often difficult to give feedback to, they are usually doing something for a reason, and they have strong convictions.
