Success for the Gen Z born between 1995 - 2009

Success as a framework is totally different for the new generation called Gen Z. The Gen Z will make up roughly 50% of the US workforce in 2020 and 75% of the global workforce by 2030. This generation truly wanted to create an impact in the society and in the community. We are yet to know what is going to look like in its exact format. This can also be called a generation of technological enhancement. Formerly a major part of the technology had a gap between the developers and the users, but for this generation it is not the case. This generation also want to be free from financial bondage, flexibility at work, get creative, give back to the community, scrap their suite and tie etc.  
When I preached a sermon in a Christian organization three people I know send me a note that they were encouraged by my sermon and  they are sending their resignation letter. It surprises me about what motivated them to take this risky step in their life. One of them said your statement "success is not a destination but a journey," influenced my thinking. Now I will add to that saying success is not about money but it is about controlling how you spend your time. I learned few years back how to manage my time or time management skills. I thought until then how I spend my 6.00 am to 7.00 am was the deal. It is not that rather how do I spent my time in my mind is what matters? How do I spent my time emotionally, spiritually and psychologically? What am I thinking of while I spent my time is more important than doing my every day duties.

In the American dream the primary expectation is how much money I have? According to Forbes Bill Gates estimated net worth is 79 billion $.  How much do I earn every year. What it takes me to be the number one. I agree financial security is important and paying my bill is necessary and do not worrying about that is very crucial in life. Being rich make you happy but will never make you successful. There is a big difference between a secular world view and a Christian world view. The motive is different such as giving vs. getting, God's will vs. self-will, God's work vs. our work and God's destiny vs. our destiny. 

Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up. Early in life I have learned the principle of falling forward. Yes when I stand-up I will be few steps forward. Recently every Tuesday I am doing a Bible study called "Experiencing God." One of the main thrust of the study is that God has better plan for me than the one I have for myself. 

Some time the job we never started will take the longer to finish. For many people they dream small that they reach their dream faster. When we dream like God and have God like dream, I am sure it will challenge and motivate us.  

Thomas Edison once said; I have not failed but I have found 10,000 ways it won't work. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way to avoid the trap of thinking that you have something to lose. You are already necked and there is no reason not to follow your heart, said Steve Job.  Success comes in cans and not in Cant's.

Prov:16: 3 talks about committing to the Lord whatever we do, and your plans will succeed. The scripture talks about a success principle by trusting in the Lord and by using our faith and confidence in the Lord.  Remember the greatest success is the way you spent your time. Everything in life can be retrieved but not your time.
