Music what's the Millenial question apparently Millennials as a generation which is a group of people who were born approximately 1984 and after are tough to manage and they're accused of being entitled and narcissistic self-interested unfocused lazy but entitled is the big one and and because they confound leadership so much what's happening is leaders are asking the Millennials what do you want and Millennials are saying we want to work in a place with purpose love that we want to make an impact you know whatever that means we want free food and bean bags and so somebody articulates some sort of purpose there's lots of free food and there's bean bags and yet for some reason they're still not happy and that's because you that they're missing this there's a there's a missing piece what I've learned is that there I can break it down into four pieces right there are four things four characteristics one is parenting the other one is technology third is impatience and the fourth is environment the generation that we call the Millennials too many of them grew up subject to not my words failed parenting strategies you know where for example they were told that they were special all the time they were told that they have anything they want in life just because they want it right they were told some of them got into honors classes not because they deserved it but because their parents complained and some of them got a is not because they earned them but because the teachers didn't want to deal with the parents some kids got participation medals you got a medal for coming in last right which the science we know is pretty clear which is it devalues the metal and the reward for those who actually work hard and that actually makes the person who comes in last feel embarrassed because they know they didn't deserve it so that makes me feel worse right so you take this group of people and they graduate school and they get a job and the thrust into an it into the real world and in an instant they find out they're not special their moms can't get them a promotion that you get nothing for coming in last and by the way you can't just have it because you want it right and in an instant their entire self-image is shattered and so you have an entire generation that's growing up with lower self-esteem than previous generations the other problem to compound it is we're growing up in a facebook Instagram world in other words we're good at putting filters on things we're good at showing people that life is amazing even though I'm depressed right and so everybody sounds tough and everybody sounds like they got it all figure it out and the reality is there's very little toughness and most people don't have it figured out and so when the more senior people say what we do they sound like this is what you got at it and they have no clue so you have an entire generation growing up with lower self-esteem than previous generations right through no fault of their own through no fault of their own right they were dealt a bad hand right now let's add in technology we know that engagement with social media and our cell phones releases a chemical called dopamine that's why when you get a text feels good right so you know we've all had it when you're feeling a little bit down or feeling a bit lonely and so you send out ten texts to ten friends you know high high high high high because it feels good when you get a response right right it's why we count the likes it's why we go back ten times to see if and if it's going if our my Instagram is growing slower I would I do something wrong do they not like me anymore right the trauma for young kids to be unfriended right because we know when you get it you get a hit of dopamine which feels good why we like it it's why we keep going back to it dopamine is the exact same chemical that makes us feel good when we smoke when we drink and when we gamble in other words it's highly highly addictive right we have age restrictions on smoking gambling and alcohol and we have no age restrictions on social media and cell phones which is the equivalent of opening up the liquor cabinet and saying to our teenagers hey by the way this adolescence thing if it gets but that's basically what's happening that's basically what's happening right that's basically what happened you have an entire generation that has access to an addictive numbing to chemical called dopamine through social media and cellphones as they're going through the high stress of adolescence why is this important almost every alcoholic discovered alcohol when they were teenagers when we're very very young the only approval we need is the approval of our parents and as we go through adolescence we make this transition where we now need the approval of our peers very frustrating for our parents very important for us that allows us to acculturate outside of our immediate families into the broader tribe right it's a highly highly stressful and anxious period of our lives and we're supposed to learn to rely on our friends some people quite by accident discover alcohol and numbing effects of dopamine to help them cope with the stresses and anxieties of adolescence unfortunately that becomes hardwired in their brains and for the rest of their lives when they suffer significant stress they will not turn to a person they will turn to the bottle social stress financial stress career stress that's pretty much the primary reasons why an alcoholic drinks right what's happening is because we're
