How To Inspire Millennial’s, Without Losing Your Mind!

-

Well for one… Millenials… Gen Y, Gen Z. Whatever the hell you want to call them are a totally different breed… I guess I could consider myself as coming in on the tail end of this wave of young blood to hit planet earth… Otherwise known as the ADD/anti-authoritarian generation to those coming from the established educational/corporate worlds, or the indigo/rainbow kids if you’re coming from the new age community. Whatever your particular bent, this is certainly a generation presenting new problems of all kinds to parents and bosses alike…

To look at how to effectively inspire a Millennial we must first understand the context in which a millennial child was brought up in. This includes taking a closer look at family life and career expectations.

As a generation who has gone through more emotional instability in the home environment than any other generation in recorded history, (lest you factor in the nomadic marauders i.e.. the Vikings, or the Kahn dynasties) these kids have been through hell and back… Why are they so ADD? Why do they have no respect for authority you ask? Well maybe it’s because their parents decided to stop facing reality, and start drinking and taking antidepressants by and large. Obviously, not all parents were into these activities, but in middle America, these activities are the new norm. They have largely seen the unhappiness that corporate America has brought upon their parents growing up and are not looking forward to repeating those trends. It’s very important for people to realize the inherent destruction of the moral fabric of society, and how millennials are a byproduct of this phenomenon.

Now alongside this emotional D-Day that many millennials experienced for a home life, they were also lied to from day one about career expectations, how much they would get paid after college, and how great they were going to feel once they developed a solid profession for themselves. Well, there is some truth in this… Millennials do really well once they find themselves and their vocation, but until then, they are a bit of a ticking time bomb. Possibly affected by addiction, emotional instability in relationships, and a general disdain for the authorities that let them down during childhood.

So how do you get through to this pack of strays? Set a solid moral individualistic example… IE be a role model for positive change out in the world. Millennials want to break with the past, heal themselves and move on to a more sane form of society. Millennials have never had any true role models, all they have been given is a pack of false, media-hyped heroes to idealize. This is where you come in, you can be the silent hero, the mentor, the loving compassionate friend. All things which have become rarities in society, especially in the bigger city environments.

Here’s the kicker… They won’t tell you that they want to heal, or that they need help or a role model in their healing process. Many times they will get defensive and go on the attack. This is where you should practice some patience and compassion as an employer, and let them know that you are there to support their emotions as long as they are doing a solid job at work… If we don’t start to do this, the emotional suppression/repression in corporate America will start to destroy society, and the economy from the inside out…

Heres some suggestions for parents and employers…

Offer meditation, outdoor workspaces, get rid of fluorescent lighting, encourage open communication, be open to new ideas and ways of doing things, leave an open door for advancement if they are providing value, draw firm emotional boundaries without resorting to anger…

If your kid doesn’t want a conventional job, show them how to start a business via crowdfunding (or hire someone like myself to show them how to do it…) See my book here..http://tinyurl.com/neff8j8

Let’s stop the dictatorial abusive corporate patterns because these psychological motifs go up the ladder into politics, at which point were all in for a tough time.

Obviously, I’m not pushing any spiritual agendas here, but we do need to take a serious look at getting our country sober and find ways to maintain a base level of societal morality in one form or another. Otherwise, we are dooming ourselves to another 20-30 years of hedonistic rappers and culturally defunct pop stars who will do little more than lead our younger generations back into a ditch… I jest, but this is the truth…

Anyhow, this is a much longer discussion than I’m sure any of you want to read, but I think this is a start… Please give me a shout and let me know what you think, or add me on twitter @crowdfundmylife

Until next time!

Have a great week!
