“With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve.” -Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Each generation wants to think they’re better than the last. It’s at the point when you start seriously noticing the differences between your generation and subsequent ones that it makes you feel old. Well, my friends I guess I’m “old.” I’m considered part of the annoying millennial generation, which has been watched by the world most of our lives. However, as a millennial I have noticed some things about the yet to be officially named generation of current 20- somethings. Not to be confused with baby boomers, the millennial generation as well as current 20- somethings could easily fall under the same umbrella, the “Me Generation.” With the rise of social media, apps that do almost everything, and new technologies, self absorption has never been easier. Unfortunately, along with self absorption comes a lack of ambition, laziness, and a near complete disregard for other people. It’s far too easy to think(and talk, and Instagram, and Snapchat,and Facebook) about yourself all day, rather than more outwardly consider the rest of the world around you. Therefore, if you are an individual that hasn’t been brainwashed by social media, get out there, do something, and help someone other than yourself! I promise it feels really good to help someone else. This leads into the question of “ Would we be more fulfilled if we helped each other more?” Not only would a movement of selflessness make our lives more enriching, but collectively easier. If we were able to count on someone other than ourselves it would lead to a lot less stress and a lot more breathing room. Having less stress means less physical ailments and even many diseases! Everyone wins. We don’t have to imagine a world like this when we easily have the power to start a movement like this today. All it takes is one person and one act of selflessness , simply just do it , and help start a chain reaction of kindness, love, and helping.
