Why do young people today expect to get rich quick and easy?

I work in a company. I had to go to college and all to be able to have my crappy job. But today something happened. A young man with a High School Diploma ONLY applied for an open executive job... As I have understood it, this is common with today's youth. Man teenagers even think that they will become celebrities. Why is that?

Many companies don't accept people with a high school diploma. Some teenagers don't believe that. They believe in hard work to become successful.

We are raised to know we can become anything we set our minds to and if we work hard enough we can become successful and happy in life. I see no faults in this logic. I'm currently attending SCAD to become an Illustrator. I know I can be successful if I work hard enough.

They just set their goals high, nothing wrong with that. If you can set high goals, you're bound to reach a satisfying level of success with enough drive, knowledge and determination.
