Luck can be your side if you worked hard for it. Hard work determine your level it can make you into a professional person. In Outliers: "The story of Success", a non-fiction story written by Malcom Gladwell's. It explain that "the people at the very top don't work just harder or even harder than everyone else. They work much, much harder."
Moreover, they require a flexible workplace and enjoy freedom and autonomy. While baby boomers prefer a more rigid and work-centric approach in workplace, generation X thrive on challenges, diversity and creative input. Generation Y on the other hand are excellent multi taskers. However they don’t tend to stay in one job for a long time. Their major weakness is that they focus on their own rewards and promotions due to which other generations consider them arrogant and unethical.
Here the workers work even though their body hurts, they have pain they have to work because they are powerless “the powerful tend to believe they deserve the success they have had and that the powerless have bought their problems on themselves” (Holmes 44). Holmes here explains that the authorities believe they deserve this to control the workers and the problems these workers are facing with the labor is their own fault. Another article that deals with this topic is Economy and Exchange with article “The Original Affluent Society” by Marshall Sahlins, a quote from there relates to the workers in the book "must work much harder in order to live than tillers and breeders" (Sahlins 13). Here you can see in the book that the migrant workers have to work in order to live but they work harder than those who have citizenship and make less money. “We have to migrate to survive.
Being lazy and narcissistic are the two biggest labels attached to the Millenials so far. If the Millennials are going to be remembered for something great they must change their outlook and actions of their lives especially when associating with the other generations. This change must start at the foundation of the Millennials problems, themselves. When this change occurs Millennials will be seen for who they truly are, a generation that is caring, smart, and who strive to make the world a better place every day. Stereotypes accompany each generation in varying degrees with the Millennial generations stereotypes being the most intense and negative with most of these being false.
We have learned ever since we were introduced to statistics that outliers don’t just fit in. In Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, these people gain a new definition: they do fit in. So much, in fact, that people shape their own lives to become an outlier. We idolize them and crave to be as successful as them, while they are really just the same as each one of us. What makes them true outliers is a combination of fate, fortune, and fervor.
Pride; Is It a Good or a Bad Thing? Pride, it’s one thing people are always burrowing their minds into, it can control our daily life or fundamentally end up giving us great success. The definition of pride is the sense of personal dignity and values. I bet most of us don’t realize how much pride we have and, how much it influences our thoughts and decisions every second of every day. Some people have so much pride they would rather fail a class than ask for help or keep fighting for an obvious lost cause simply because they can’t give up.
Of any kind motivation they instinctively from, it is strongly correlated to which extent they perceive self-determination. It means that the stronger motivation can reflect the higher self-determination they would applied to the performance, task or challenges (Moran and colleagues, 2012, p.361). Related to the story, the man who works for IT job, personally did not really interested in the social voluntary activity and more interested in his personal professional career building as a fresh graduate at that moment. In the beginning, he did not see valuable of joining the project but then the team brought him idea that he actually able to use the project as a portfolio for his own employment branding. In this situation, he has lower intrinsic motivation but higher extrinsic
In this generation we are often pushed in extrinsic motivation due to material success and recognition in the society. We always end up comparing what others have and we have such as status, grade, salary etc. I think first a person should get intrinsic motivation over extrinsic motivation because earning something without fulfillment in your life is useless. We always need to keep a balance between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation so that other one doesn’t take control over your life. Always remember that money can’t buy happiness without earning it with something we loved or
The truth is, humans, live in a materialistic society. Every day, the majority will habitually worry about what they own rather than who they really are. However, it’s sort of not their fault as it’s in our nature to long for material possessions and has something amazing to impress others. But hear this out – “The best things in life aren’t things” Art Muchwald. Society shouldn’t only be just focused on easily replaceable materialistic things.
There are chances he/she could accept any of your presented ideas of they are really very good. Learn to respect your boss: In this context, albeit the boss being a person having very little experience of handling people needs to be treated with reasonable, if not utmost respect. It is a give and take relationship where your vast experience aides him in his work and his new ideas impart a fresh outlook to the work. Being able to respect the boss despite a generational difference in your ages is a matter of pride. Respecting his ideas and authority also helps him to function smoothly as a boss.
After climbing the ladder of success, more and more people come to realize that this is not actually what they were looking for and that money and fame can’t buy real happiness. Therefore, I came to realize that there are two different types of success: extrinsic and intrinsic. However, most people get confused and look towards extrinsic success, which is money, fame, and recognition from others, even though they should look towards intrinsic success, such as true happiness and passions. But in order to switch from external to internal goals one has

As well as it is more common for a man to get a higher position in a private sector then a woman. “I assume people know that discrimination is alive and well in our culture, but clearly that’s not the case. It’s not like I’m making these facts up or that this research is biased; the hard truth is that gender equality has not been achieved in our society” (Sinn 7). People claim that discrimination in our country no longer exist between race and gender.
When, the New Deal helped workers, it excessively favored white males. Women, African Americans, and Native Americans still received some benefits but nothing compared to their peers. Governmental growth during this period, assisted in problems facing the nation, however brought about question in reference to American people and their freedoms. Roosevelt forever altered the relationship between the United States Government and its people. The New Deal had a large impact and it still does.
Sperry and Mrs. Wagner are imaginary, wage gap inequality is very real. I would hope that as I begin my professional career, I am treated with the same high esteem as my male counterparts. Working hard all my life to be paid less is not a practice I would like to take part in. I feel the only plausible and effective way to solve the wage gap inequality is for the head of companies to intervene and take immediate action rather than taking a backseat approach and instructing companies to implement programs that won’t have an immediate effect. A hands-on approach by someone in charge will not only address the severity of the issue but will encourage all women to take it upon themselves to declare their equality and demand that they be treated as such.
