Entitlement is an insidious disease. Slowly, it creeps in and, before you know it, you feel you deserve the world, and more.
Entitlement tells us that we have a right to something. Whether that’s our leadership position, some kind of possession, or privilege.
We struggle with this because we’ve been conditioned to want more and better. We are bombarded with messages that tell us we’re deserving of more.
The truth is, we’re not.
While we may be good at our jobs.. While we may be a great husband or wife… While we may land the big gigs…
We’re not entitled to anything more than what we’ve agreed upon in those areas.
It also doesn’t entitle us to bigger and better.
How To Stop The Feeling Of Entitlement
Entitlement can creep up on us before we realize it. Even when we feel we’re prepared and watching out for it.
