3 Ways Millennials Can Transform Their Day to Day Life

You may have seen this video circulating. It has over 2 million views in just 2 months. In it, Simon Sinek, a consultant on leadership in the workplace for the RAND corporation, goes into detail about the role that millennials (those born after 1984) play in the workplace, and why we act certain ways.

We’ve all heard the arguments. The stereotypical millennial is entitled, we are lazy and unmotivated; we don’t know how to work hard, and we don’t value the opinions of those older than us. We’re more likely to stand up to authority and attempt to figure things out on our own.

On the whole, these are mostly true accusations. To some extent we are all of those things. But Sinek offers explanations and resolutions.

First, he breaks it down into four main causes of the current millennial mindset: parenting, technology, impatience, and environment.

Parenting

Sinek blames some of our troubles on what he calls “failed parenting methods”. That is, too many of our parents brought us up with the ideas that we are special, and that we deserve things just because we want them. We were given participation medals and trophies no matter how well we did.

He explains that these are all scientifically poor parenting choices because, in the instance of the participation medals, research shows that it significantly devalues the prize for those who have won, or finished first, and it actually makes the person who finishes last embarrassed because they know they don’t deserve it. So it actually lowers their self-esteem.

Growing up with that mindset makes for a very strong reality check when those children reach the real world after graduating from school. No longer can mom or dad call the school and help with grades, you get nothing for finishing in last, and promotions are earned, not given just because you want them.

So now we have an entire generation that, once we hit the workforce, our self esteem drops immediately as soon as life stops working out for us as it did under our parents’ roof.

Technology

Next, we add in technology. Millennials are the first generation to grow up with instant access to technology and social media. Which, Simon argues, means that we are the first generation to grow up putting filters on everything we do. We are wonderful at making out lives look happy and perfect even when we’re depressed and everything feels like it’s spiraling out of control.

Along with that, we know scientifically, that interaction with social media releases dopamine in the brain. The same chemical that is released when humans drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, or gamble. This means that our interaction with social media is highly addictive. In fact, Sinek states, research shows that those who spend more time on Facebook are actually more depressed than those who spend less time on Facebook.

The real issue with this technology is the age at which it is normally introduced. We were given social media right in the middle of adolescence, which, for most, is an extremely stressful few years full of questions, changes, and uncertainty. So, instead of learning to lean on friends and family, as we’re supposed to, in a tough time, we now go to where we know we will feel good. We know we get a hit of dopamine when we get a lot of “likes” so we post a picture that will do the trick. It’s the same reason most alcoholics drink. They get stressed out, and find the one place they are certain will always give them the hit of dopamine they’re looking for.

What happens now, is that our generation doesn’t know how to form deep, meaningful relationships. Instead of talking to each other when we’re out at dinner, we often have our phone on the table. Instead of making small talk before a meeting, we’re checking emails or texting a friend. We do it because we know it will make us feel good. But all this sends a subliminal message to everyone else in the room, that we do not think they are as important as whatever is on our phone. Therefore, the foundation of trust that every relationship needs is effectively built on sand, the result of understanding that we are not as important to the other person as they are to us.

Impatience

The next step is impatience. After our parents tell us we can have whatever we want, and the technology to actually make it happen, very few millennials have actually developed the characteristic of patience.

Unfortunately, when we relate this to the workplace, it leads to thousands of millennials entering our first jobs out of college with high expectations and high hopes. We know that we’re going to do well (because our parents and teachers have told us so), and we know that we want to make an impact on our new companies, but then reality sets in. The same feeling that we mentioned earlier of low self-esteem and feeling inadequate hits hard and we don’t feel like we’re making an impact, and we don’t feel like we’re doing well at our jobs. But this is often the first real adversity most of us face so we think something is wrong with us or our situation so we try to move on to another job.

What we don’t understand inherently is that job fulfillment takes time and energy. Sinek poses the metaphor of a mountain with the summit being the impact we’re looking to make. And millennials see the summit without seeing the mountain we have to climb to get there.

And this concept works, not only for a career, but for all important areas of life. It is true for every friendship you are a part of, it’s true for every love interest you have. We are so used to automatically conjuring up these things over a cell phone, that we often forget that these relationships take place in real life.

Environment

Lastly, we are products of the environment we are placed into. When we enter corporate situations, it’s often with managers and businesses that are worried about numbers and metrics as opposed to the workers they hire. There is more attention spent on meeting short term goals than there is on the development young employees.

Sinek argues that we are put in environments that do not teach us the skills of cooperation and relationship building. We aren’t put in situations which work out the need for instant gratification. He states that it’s the lack of good leadership in the world that has placed us in this position.

What would be more important to a business, making a sales goal in one year, but losing their employees and essentially starting over every year? Or maybe taking a little longer to reach that sales goal, but forming long lasting skills in their young employees who will then stick around for years and years?

So what do we do?

So how are we supposed to react? What are we supposed to do? We are the millennials everyone talks about. We are the millennials everyone complains about. And I’m sure many of you reading this identified with the situations Sinek is describing.

In the video, Sinek gives a couple good suggestions about how to stay off of cell phones, and how to form longer lasting relationships. He tells how businesses can help millennials by changing a few policies or focusing more time and effort in their training. But Simon largely blames the plight of the millennial on external circumstances.

As a 24 year old in the business world, it would be easy for me to listen to this video and instantly become the victim. I could go to my manager and ask him to implement some of these principles that, according to Sinek, would help me perform better. But I don’t necessarily agree.

What Sinek says in this talk is simple to understand for people of all ages. The listener doesn’t reach 40 years old and suddenly have clarity as to solutions. I think it is because of our position that we must be the one’s to solve our problems.

We know the problems we have better than anyone, so let’s do something about them. It’s not an easy road, I have my cell phone sitting right beside me currently, but there are a few simple things we can do everyday that will help save us from ourselves.

First, put the phones and laptops down during meals. Mealtime used to be the greatest way to get to know someone. Everyone has to eat, and we all do it at approximately the same time everyday, so why not do it together without the distraction of whatever is on your phone.

Second, be intentional about looking another person in the face and listening to them. A great deal of trust is formed subconsciously when they know you are only focused on them.

Third, make yourself available to life. This one sounds a bit more abstract, but it’s as simple as looking up instead of down when you’re walking. When you’re at a restaurant and someone leaves the table, take the opportunity to look around and see what’s happening in the area. Don’t close yourself off from everyone in public by constantly listening to music. Just being present both physically and mentally will have a great deal of impact as to the thoughts you have, the ideas you come up with, and the fulfillment you get from everyday circumstances.

In the new year, before you post your pictures with #NewYearNewMe, consider making some of these simple changes that can truly transform your day to day life.

Crazy Laws and Government Regulations You Won’t Believe

Undoubtedly, government regulations restrain job creation, prevent growth by the private sector, are a waste of government spending, and are a waste of our tax dollars. There are environmental regulations, advertising regulations, employment regulations, and many, many other ridiculous regulations which will be listed below. Here are crazy government regulations that will make consider secession:

  • In Texas, every new computer repair technician must obtain a private investigator’s license.
    • Obtaining a private investigator’s license requires a degree in criminal justice or a three-year apprenticeship with a licensed private investigator.
    • Violating this law may result in a fine of up to $4,000 and a one-year imprisonment.
  • In Philadelphia, bloggers must purchase a $300 business privilege license.
  • It is illegal to wash a fish at a faucet if it is not a fish-washing faucet, in a national forest.
  • In any national park in Washington, DC, it is a federal crime to harass a golfer.
  • Consulting with a known pirate is violating a federal crime.
  • It is a federal crime to let your pet make a noise that scares the wildlife in a national park.
    • Because God forbid an animal do what an animal does.
  • It is a federal crime to skydive while drunk.
    • Well, I mean, this makes sense, but at least give us the freedom of choice!
  • If you want to sell anti-flatulent drugs, you must note that “flatulence” is “referred to as gas.”
    • Some people just need a dictionary.
  • It is a federal crime to attempt to change the weather without telling the Secretary of Commerce.
  • In Louisiana, monks must be fully licensed as funeral directors and convert their monasteries into licensed funeral homes before they will be allowed to sell their handmade wooden caskets.
  • In Lake Elmo, Minnesota, farmers may be fined $1,000 and put in jail for 90 days just for selling pumpkins or Christmas trees grown outside city limits.
  • A fisherman in Massachusetts was fined $500 for untangling a giant whale from his nets and setting it free.
    • What’s the problem?  Apparently the fisherman was supposed to call the state authorities and wait for them to do it.
  • In Texas, only individuals with government licenses may refer to themselves as interior designers or use the term “interior design” to describe their work.
  • The U.S. FDA is projecting that the food service industry will have to spend an additional 14 million hours every year to follow new regulations that mandate all vending machine operators and chain restaurants must label all products so that the calorie count is visible to the customer.

Looking at these ridiculous laws and government regulations, it almost seems as if we are living in a communist society that takes every opportunity to suppress the free market. It is easy to see how these laws and regulations waste money, inhibit growth by the private sector, and prevent the growth of job creation. Donald Trump, the President-Elect, has vowed to “Drain the Swamp” and get rid of many government regulations so that small business can once again thrive on their own without fear of government intervention. If a President Trump can cut taxes and regulations, we would see a tremendous economic growth from all sides. The big businesses will be able to hire more employees, small businesses will be able to hire more employees and grow their business, and consumers will be able to spend more money they saved from tax cuts to further enhance the condition of the economy under a free market.

8 Things You WON’T Hear at the Third Presidential Debate

While the American people continue to be distracted with nonsensical issues reported by MSM, here are 8 different issues that you won’t hear being discussed at the next debate scheduled for Wednesday, October 19th at the University of Las Vegas.

1) Investigating the Saudis for their roles in 9/11

saudi-arabia-usa-400x2081

The House of Representatives passed a bill, which will hold Saudi Arabia responsible for their roles in the 9/11 attacks, allowing the 9/11 victims to sue whoever were responsible. Obama vetoed this bill because his administration knows that investigating 9/11 would result in the US being involved in the investigation as well.

The American people are beginning to challenge and question what they were told regarding the 9/11 attacks. Unfortunately, US elected officials are rarely held accountable for their crimes against the people. The mainstream media has no interest in discussing this.

FACT: Despite trying to pander to women rights organizations and the LGBT community, Clinton accepts contributions from Saudi Arabia which is not only severely brutal towards women, but also against homosexuals. If this issue was to be addressed during the debate, many proclaimed Feminists would reject Clinton’s cronyism.

2) George Soros hijacking BLM, Buying Off Politicians.

crzhkmjukaal-ft

George Soros, to no one’s surprise, has contributed up to $2.5 Million to the Clinton foundation. He has been exposed for using his philanthropic efforts to influence politics worldwide. Soros is responsible for infiltrating the BLM movement in order to spark division among race, leading to a further divided and emotionally vulnerable nation.

FACT: Darren Seals, early Ferguson protest leader and police brutality activist, was one of the earliest founders of the Black Lives Matter movement. He later began to reject and expose BLM completely after realizing the movement was being infiltrated by elite interests. He was later shot to death and left to burn alive in a car.

3) Trans-Pacific Partnership

Both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump have called out Clinton for supporting NAFTA and now, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Although she has recently come out against it, expect her to pull a last minute flip flop on the issue. Her going against the TPP would mean upsetting her corporate donors.

4) NSA Mass Surveillance

cgmlgnsw0aawvmr

The reason why the PATRIOT ACT won’t be mentioned is because Clinton is in favor of the unconstitutional act, which allows the government to collect private information on innocent Americans. This is disguised as national security but what Americans don’t realize is that corrupt governments have stripped away basic liberties in the name of defense since the Roman Empire.

5) Auditing/Ending the Federal Reserve

what-dollar

Auditing the Federal Reserve is a position that gained Ron Paul an incredible amount of grassroots supporters during the 2012 presidential election. Challenging the Federal Reserve banking cartel is not beneficial for the political and corporate elite, because it would put an end to their monopolized control of the U.S. dollar.

FACT: Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy were opposed to the idea of a private-centralized bank. Opposition towards the Federal Reserve holds a historic influence on the American Revolution and many other historical events in global history.

6)  Recent US Drone Strikes in Yemen

Barack Obama’s horrific drone program is responsible for thousands of civilian deaths in the Middle East. Just recently, a US navy destroyer has fired missiles in Yemen as our government (and Saudi Arabia) continues to commit atrocious war crimes overseas. Over 10,000 civilians have been killed under Saudi Arabia’s 18-month bombing campaign.

FACT: The Obama Administration has bombed more countries than the Bush Administration after September 11th including Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, and Syria. This has created consistent and rising conflict in the Middle East, which is going to eventually bite our country in the ass.

7) Dakota Access Pipeline

Amy Goodman, Jill Stein, Shailene Woodley and over 100,000 environmental activists have been arrested for voicing their concern over the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is set to bring 8,000, to 12,000 jobs within the construction industry.

Amy Goodman is facing potential prison time for reporting on the protests.

FACT: Clinton supported the Keystone Pipeline and is in favor of offshore drilling. Her campaign has received over 6 Million dollars from the fossil fuel industry.

8) Clinton’s ties with Corporate-America

screen_shot_2016-03-06_at_5-05-58_pm

“We need an economy that works for everyone, not just those on top.”

Is Goldman Sachs not “on top”?  Her campaign would disintegrate without help from corporate-America due to the lack of grassroots support she’s received. The Clinton Administration has been involved in corporatism since Bill’s womanizing prime. Bernie Sanders’ supporters rejected Clinton for this reason alone. This is what Trump and Bernie supporters agree the most on, speaking out against corrupt political and corporate influences in Washington.

FACT: Clinton’s top 5 contributors include JP Morgan, Citibank, and Goldman Sachs. Can’t expect her to talk negatively about corporations when they are keeping her campaign alive. This is a perfect case of not biting the hand that feeds you.

 

 

 

Hillary’s top 5 lies

The woman we all love to hate, the Democrat nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Whatever you choose to call her: Hillary, HRC, Hilla the Hun, the Wicked Witch of the West Wing, Satan; she’s the most corrupt and fraudulent presidential candidate our nation has ever seen. These are the top 5, out of dozens, the top 5 most disgusting lies that Hillary Clinton has told the American people, and I don’t mean little, white lies that everyone tells. I mean flat out, blatant, serious lies.

Her 1996 trip to Bosnia

In the midst of her presidential run in 2008, Clinton gave a speech at George Washington University where she said:

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Lie.

Her arrival in Bosnia was quite pleasant, actually. A video from CBS shows Clinton arriving peacefully and being greeted with flowers and gifts from U.S. and Bosnian officials. She later told the Philadelphia Daily News that she “misspoke” about the arrival and that she heard that there was a threat of sniper fire in the area. She said “I made a mistake. I’m human. It happens to all of us.” It wasn’t a mistake Hillary. It was a lie.

Where her daughter was on September 11, 2001

This one is especially horrible in my opinion. Clinton told NBC’s Dateline the following:

“She’d gone, what she thought would be just a great jog. She was going to go down to Battery Park, she was going to go around the towers. She went to get a cup of coffee and — and that’s when the plane hit.”

Her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, later told Talk Magazine that she was at her friend’s apartment watching the coverage when the planes hit. Tammy Bruce, Fox News radio host, suggested that Hillary Clinton may suffer from mythomania, a pathological tendency to exaggerate or tell lies, and I don’t think that would surprise any of us. Clinton was a senator in New York at the time and her fellow New York senator, Chuck Schumer, his daughter was in school in the shadow of the World Trade Center during the attack. To lie about the whereabouts of her daughter to make it seem as if she was in danger is beyond disrespectful to the families and victims of that horrific day.

Her emails

Just recently, FBI director James Comey came out to say that while Hillary Clinton was extremely careless with her private email server, he wouldn’t recommend that she be prosecuted. The information Comey provided regarding the emails showed that everything the Clinton Campaign has said about the emails before was a, you guessed it, lie. First of all she claimed that she never sent any classified information, but Comey said that there were some emails that contained markings of classified material. Next, Clinton expressed that she was allowed to have the private server. My question is, why would anyone in a place of power like the Secretary of State feel the need to have a private email server with information that could compromise our national security, especially when she was receiving and sending information in foreign countries where foreign adversaries could have easily accessed it? Clinton also claimed that she had no intention of deleting any of the emails, however, Comey said that her staff and lawyers had deleted over 30,000 emails in such a way that they could not be recovered. And how about the fact that one of her IT staffers has pleaded the fifth 125 times when asked questions during the dispositions. Despite the facts that James Comey has given, it looks as if Hillary Clinton will not be indicted, but still no one is above the law?

That she is just like the average American citizen

How about no.

I don’t think the average American citizen makes $200,000 per speech they make or have children that only attended private schools their whole life. If the average American had emailed classified information and put our country’s national security at risk, they would have been thrown in prison faster than they could say ‘classified.’ While making a speech on the topic of inequality, Clinton stood at the podium in a Giorgio Armani jacket that cost over $12,000. Oh, the irony. During her current campaign run, she has updated her wardrobe and spent over 6 figures on new clothes. Or how about the fact that she hasn’t driven her own car since 1996. Her major downfall in the 2008 presidential election was that the American people felt she was unapproachable and out of touch with the average American. Update in 2016: She still is. Just this time, she’s trying too hard.

Benghazi

It is a known fact from the State Department that Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, knew that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya was a terrorist attack and failed to react. As a result, 4 American lives were lost. In her testimony, she said that she cared deeply about Ambassador Chris Steven’s death, but later went on to say that he knew the risks associated with his job and he was responsible for this own death. She claimed that the attack was based off of a YouTube video and continued to say so after she herself had admitted that the deadly attack, “had nothing to with the film. It was a planned attack — not a protest.” She told her own family that those who died, died at the hands of an Al-Qaeda like terrorist attack, but she told the families of the victims that they died at a protest gone wrong because of YouTube video. She lied to the faces of grieving families for political gain right before the 2012 election. It is absolutely appalling.

Some leftists argue, “Accusations about Hillary being a liar are clearly just vast right-wing conspiracies. Hillary’s merely misinformed about her own life.” Let me be the first to say that no one is that “misinformed” about their own life. Sure, people slip sometimes and say things that aren’t the total truth, but Hillary Clinton has done this about a dozen too many times. As someone who is running for the most powerful chair in the political world, this is completely unacceptable.

#NeverHillary

15 things more trustworthy than Hillary Clinton

Love her or hate her, you sure can’t trust her.

  1. The Signs in high school about drugs and alcohol

I can guarantee that “98% of my senior class doesn’t drink” is absolutely false.

  1. Boxed Hair Dye

That stuff just doesn’t come out on anyone’s hair the same way it looks on the box.

  1. Fitness Instructors That Say, “This is your last set, I promise!”

Don’t trust them! “Last set” means like two or three more. Always.

The Clintons’ Crooked History

Bill and Hillary Clinton are the most corrupt political couple in American history. Fortunately for them, many of their scandals took place before Millennials gained their political awareness. Let’s examine just a few of the many corrupt actions of America’s most famous power couple.

Whitewater

The first scandal to envelop the Clintons involves a failed business venture called Whitewater Development Corp while they were still politicos in Arkansas. Bill and Hillary, along with their friends Jim and Susan McDougal, invested money to buy plots of land with the intent being to sell the plots for vacation homes. The business eventually failed and the Clintons and the McDougal’s lost money on the venture.

The Whitewater business later underwent investigation. Claims were made that the McDougals sought and received illegal fraudulent loans for the business, and that the Clintons used their political stature to pressure the bank in question into making the illegal loans.

The McDougals were convicted, but the Clintons got off scot-free.

President Clinton granted a full pardon to Susan McDougal before leaving the Oval Office.

Travelgate

The White House Travel Office is responsible for facilitating the travel arrangements of the White House press corp. The Travel Office contracts travel business out to private companies. Upon hearing of potential mismanagement in the Travel Office, all seven employees were fired.

The scandal: Hillary Clinton had designs to get her friends who worked in the travel industry hired in the White House Travel Office and award her friends with the government contracts.

Upon government investigation, it was concluded that it was technically legal to fire the Travel Office employees for any reason, but entirely inappropriate and unethical to allow those with business interests at stake to influence the decision. It was also concluded that while President Clinton had no involvement, Hillary played a large role in the firings and is quoted as saying that she had to get her people in the Travel Office.

Filegate

The Travelgate investigations led to another Clinton scandal called Filegate. A top Clinton White House official ordered the FBI to hand over secret files on hundreds of top Republicans for political opposition research. It was an enemies list, as several described it at the time. It was later found that Bill and Hillary had no involvement in Filegate, but it just goes to show the kind of people they hired and the kind of White House they ran.

The Impeachment

President Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, NOT for fooling around with Monica Lewinsky.

President Clinton was under investigation for his sexual harassment of Paula Jones, an Arkansas government employee back when Bill was in state politics. During his deposition, Bill lied under oath and denied any involvement with Monica Lewinsky. Upon perjuring himself, the United States Congress voted to hold impeachment hearings on President Bill Clinton. Only after being caught did Bill come clean with the American people.

The vote to toss Bill and Hill out of the Oval Office came down to party lines and he was allowed to finish his term. Had you or I done exactly what Bill Clinton did, we would be in prison.

Benghazi

On September 11th, 2012, there was a terrorist attack on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Islamic extremists stormed the embassy and killed 4 Americans, one of them being Ambassador Chris Stephens.

After the attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the American people that this attack was not terrorism, but a spontaneous protest-turned-violent that was inspired by a anti-Muslim Youtube video produced in America. However, emails were uncovered that show Hillary was lying to the American people. She was telling her family and friends that this was a terrorist attack while telling America it wasn’t terrorism, but a protest. In fact, Hillary even wrote the Prime Minister of Egypt on the night of the attack saying, “We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest.”

For two weeks Hillary lied to the American people and blamed the video, not terrorism, for the death of four Americans. But, as Hillary said during her testimony, “what difference does it make?” Hillary lied because her boss, President Obama, had an election approaching 54 days later, and a terrorist attack in a country that was the epitome of Clinton/Obama foreign policy simply wasn’t good politics, the truth be damned.

The Email Server

As a result of the investigations into Hillary’s failings and lies concerning Benghazi, it was discovered that Secretary Clinton had been using a private email server and device, not the mandated government ones, to conduct her official government business. As a former Congressional staffer, I can tell you definitively that every member of the U.S. government has two devices: one for personal business and one for government business. Hillary’s email server was not secured or approved by any government security officials. According to the director of the FBI, James Comey, Hillary mishandled classified documents on this illegal email server and it’s even possible that it was hacked by “hostile actors.” Who knows what state secrets were discovered by the enemies of America? Were CIA covers blown? Were secret government operations exposed? We may not know what was stolen from Clinton’s server until it is too late.

So, the final question is, to quote Hillary, “What difference does it make?” The Clintons have more scandals under their belts than any American politicians in our nation’s history. We didn’t even get into the multiple sexual harassment and rape allegations leveled against Bill Clinton, or the subpoenaed documents that Hillary hid for years from federal investigators, or the millions of dollars the Clintons have taken from Wall Street, or how the Clintons sell influence through their “charity,” the Clinton Foundation.

These scandals show that Bill and Hillary are corrupt to their cores. They use political power to get away with whatever crimes they wish and they lie to the American people time and time again. Hillary and her husband have abused power ever since they entered the public arena. As insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result, it would be insane to elect Hillary Clinton as President and expect her to stop her 30 year pattern of corruption.
