Are Young People Lazy ? Are young people Lazy By Nasei Sinkeet / Seisei

Y

oung people represent the promise of changing societies for the better. Yet, there are no enough jobs for them. Millions are also not transitioning into decent work and are at the risk of social exclusion. Persistent youth unemployment and underemployment carry very high social and economic costs and threaten the fabric of our societies. Failure to generate sufficient decent jobs can result in long-lasting “scarring” effects on young people. There is an urgent need to reverse the trend now. Unless immediate and vigorous action is taken, the future confronts the grim legacy of a lost generation. A lot of people complain about young unemployed or underemployed graduates. They say that ‘millennials’ are too lazy and entitled and not aggressive and not doing enough to use the education that’s their parents spent so much to ensure the get. New graduates who enter the workforce have done nothing wrong. They are certainly not lazy. They are simply given one path, one option in life: go to school, get a degree, and then you can get a well-paying job. They spent all of this time, effort and money working towards this goal. The “promise” of succeeding in this path might have not been written out explicitly, but society gave them little choice. The education system encourages them to do so and the parents likely followed along. Upon graduating they realized that this “promise” didn’t come to fruition as expected. Again, they did nothing wrong. The problem is in the framework and in the way our economic model incentivizes people. The economy is largely controlled by organizations and companies. They have money and jobs. They decide whether or not to hire you. If these organizations and companies don’t need your skills, then you are out of luck. These are the same companies who want to maximize efficiency and won’t blink twice to lay-off employees or restructure when ‘things aren’t going well.’ Muhammad Yunus the Nobel Prize winner possess a very fundamental question: “Are people born to be working for somebody else or born to do things they want?. That’s not how it works. When human beings came to this planet, they were not sending out job applications” .For most of history, we have been entrepreneurs. As hunters and gatherers, we had to solve problems every day. We had to figure out how to feed ourselves. We were bakers, farmers, cobblers, and blacksmiths. We had street stalls and restaurants and shops and offered our serve The Nobel Peace Prize winner believes that instead of going through life expecting to get a job, rather, young people should be job creators. He believes everyone is an entrepreneur. He says “don’t ask for a job, make your own”. This may seem like a bold statement but it is not. It’s just contrarian. Youth entrepreneurship can be a pathway to decent work and sustainable enterprise for some young people and should be a component of national efforts to address the youth employment crisis. The promotion of entrepreneurship encompasses a range of activities in the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, including private business development, self-employment, social enterprises, and cooperatives. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work for a company, not at all. No individual could have been able to create a microprocessor or iPhone. We need lots of people and lots of companies to innovate. The greater point is that people have options — job taker or job creator — but the system we have in place only fosters and supports one path. The next option should be considered seriously.

By Nancy Njuguna Inter County Media Team Are you unhappy when others are succeeding? Does your success seem dependent on someone else’s failure? “Keeping up with the Joneses� is an expression that is commonly used to describe the attitude of always wanting to keep up with the neighbours in terms of possessions and wanting to have the things that our neighbours have. Envy is another word that can be used to describe this frame of mind. This is a very appropriate word because it encompasses greed, jealousy, resentment and a strong desire for something somebody else has, usually at whatever cost.

Origin Unfortunately, it is an attitude that is widespread, not only in Kenya, but all over the world. Throughout our childhood and most of our adult life, competition is the order of the day. Right from our school days we are taught that our self-worth is measured in relation to other people. Wait a minute though, why can’t all the kids in class pass number one? Why must we compare one child to another? A simple pass or fail remark on the report card might be sufficient without necessarily stating numbers. Unfortunately for children, parents take these numbers very seriously. This carries on through life. The boss must ensure that he does not allow his juniors to get too much knowledge or qualifications if he is to keep his number one spot as the top dog in the company. In fact, at times he must deliberately frustrate any efforts by his subordinates to progress. Even amongst friends and relatives this occurs. Sibling rivalry does not always end when children grow up. A lot of times it continues. The success of one child in adulthood is measured against the success of another. It seems whatever we have achieved seems insignificant when compared to what so and so has done or acquired.



       

Dangers of the loser mentality There are several reasons why envy is such a problem. Firstly, if you are envious of another person’s success that means you will never be satisfied with anything you ever achieve. The fact remains that most times there will always be someone that does better than you in some area. Secondly, if you are envious of other people’s success it means you have no clue what you want for your own life. Just because the Joneses have it or do this and that does not mean you should have it or do it. Will it help you in achieving your own objectives and “minding your own business?� If you have a clear vision for your life, what another person achieves or acquires won’t matter: you will know exactly where you are, why you are there, where you need to go and what you need to do to get there. Thirdly, carried to some extremes, envious people will even try to cripple the progress of others and stop it if possible. Rather than channel their energy into their own success they channel it into this very unproductive mindset: backstabbing, sabotaging, destroying at every chance they get and spending their prime time on thinking about others instead of thinking of ways to improve their own situation.


The Three Basic Mindsets When it comes to succeeding in life there are three basics mindsets that people tend to have. These are the win/lose mentality, the lose/lose mentality and the win/win mentality. People with a win/lose mentality would be those that compare themselves to other people all the time. They believe that in order for them to succeed others must fail. To them, success is relative. Those with a loss/loss mentality believe that they can never achieve anything worthwhile so why should they let you do so. They try to keep other people in the sinking boat that they are in. Negativity is the order of the day for them. Don’t ever try to tell such people that you have great plans for your life – they will only criticize you and tell you it can’t be done. After all, they tried that already and it did not work! Dreamers, who are achievers, have the win/win mentality. Not only do they know that they are capable of and will succeed, but they realize that their success does not depend on other people’s failure. To the contrary, their success depends on other people’s success.

Cultivate It Learn to be happy about others’ success and look forward to your own success. Do not judge yourself based on what others have achieved, but rather based on what you want to achieve. Depending on what you want in life, their success could be failure to you or vice versa, but it should not matter to you either way. Life is not a race against other people. It is a one man race. You determine the destination, the route, the time limits and the prize. We are all running a different race. How do you compete with someone that is not on the same track as you are? Envy and jealousy are habits you must always be weary of and stay clear of. Like other bad habits they will only rob you of your energy, creativity, drive, clarity of mind and enthusiasm for life. The winning mindset - conclusion Stephen R. Covey, in discussing this subject states: “Win/win is based on the paradigm that there is plenty for everybody, that one person’s success is not achieved at the expense or exclusion of the success of others‌It’s not your way or my way; it’s a better way, a higher way.â€? You are all you can be. Go on and be it.
