Everybody wants to be successful but almost nobody wants to work for it.

That’s the easiest way to describe today's’ generation. Even though there has been a rise in people wanting to become entrepreneurs, the stacked competition and the necessary discipline to create a great business outweighs almost 80% of them.

But it seems like a no brainer right? If they only keep on persisting and work on their work will pay off right?

Yes, but most of us don’t really want to actually work hard for it. We want it easy.

In this article, we’ll talk about the problem in the generation of quitters and how to take advantage of this problem.


The Big Problem With The New Generation

Have you ever tried to make an online business? Or maybe start a YouTube channel? How many of you actually went through the first few months?

I’m guessing you didn’t even make it past the 3rd month. But if you do, congratulations! Keep it up!

But I'm guessing most of you failed in the first few months. Not that the work is hard or anything, it might just be that you expected more. Maybe you got 30 views a day, then 17 then 5 views a day. You'll get discouraged.

It seems like it’s not gaining any traction. It just seems like it’s not going to work. So you abandon it and watch as other people who persist gain the success you’ve always imagined.

It’s a heart-wrenching wake-up call, but I feel like you really need to know that
There are 2 main reasons why most of this new generation will fail:

  • They aren’t willing to be persistent
  • They have big expectations that they can't reach

Let's go into each one in detail,


Persistence Problem?

I know a lot of people who give up way too fast. Too much to give me less and less hope for the generations to come.

The reason why this problem is rising is because of the increasing innovation in our day to day life. We don’t have to walk anymore, we can order an Uber. If we want to watch a movie, just go to Netflix instead of the cinemas.

The world’s getting easier and everybody’s getting used to it and that’s where the problems lie: Everyone wants it easy.

Let's face it, if success was easy we all would’ve done it! It’s not a myth that every person in this world wants to be successful in one way or another, the only problem is most of the human population aren’t willing to work for it.

They might put in a couple of days of work but when they realize that it’s not going the way it goes, they’re going to quit.

SOLUTION: The easiest solution is to be more disciplined. There are a lot of ways to train yourself to be more persistent, one of the best ways is to take a goal you have and break it into practical tasks that you can do every day.

So, if you’re making an online business. Break it down into tasks that you need to do every day to improve your business.

For example, I want to write every day. That’s my goal because I enjoy writing. But that goal is just too abstract so I break it down into a task in which I have to write 1 hour a day or in Hubpages case, 1 article a day.

Being consistent when you’re doing all these tasks will also make you much more persistent.

Big Expectation Low Result

This is a very common problem among many people nowadays. Because the internet has wired our minds to get results in an instant. Many people have this ridiculously unrealistic expectation that they will get results immediately.
They think that if they promote just enough, they’ll get enough followers/potential customers. That’s just nonsense.

Most people aren’t willing to put in the necessary work for it because they think that with just enough hard work. That might work but if you imagine your first few weeks you’re going to get hundreds or even thousands of revenue flowing in one month. Go home and do your homework.

Life’s not as simple as searching an answer on google.

SOLUTION: Keep your expectation down to a minimum. If you can, try having little to no expectation at all as it not only relieves you of the burden of having to do it but also you'll also gain much more satisfaction than when you otherwise expect it.


To be successful in the generation of quitters: You have to be persistent in chasing your goals! If you quit easily, you’re not going anywhere unless down the pavement. You have to climb that large hill even if it’s intimidating. It’s better to take one step at a time than to not move at all.

The other thing you need to have in order to not quit easily is to have a small expectation. Don’t expect big things at the start, it’ll only discourage you. Expect small achievable goals that you can track, if you expect big things too early, you’ll quit too quickly.

Good Luck!
