"Self-awareness is the key to success " As it's rightly said a person who is self-aware can become very successful in life. As self-awareness is the capability of rating and judging one own self, most importantly being aware of one own strengths and weaknesses. A person who is aware of his own strength and weakness can work harder on his weakness to become successful. The problem with today's generation is that they dwell in their own world of imagination. When their imagination clashes with reality, they are unable to take the set back so they lack the self-confidence and courage to take the failure or disappointment and end up taking drastic steps by putting an end to their life. It's really unfortunate today's generation is more sensitive compared to the previous generation as the toll in no of lives due to depression, anxiety and suicide are alarming day by day. Even for small things, youngsters without pondering about their future or family members take an extreme step. People belonging to the current generation lack the positive attitude and courage to deal with failures. If we retrospect the lives of our ancestors they led a more peaceful and happy life as they were contented with what they had and were not money-minded and competitive. But in today's scenario, even a 10-year-old child is very sensitive and is unable to deal with failures. They are unable to even accept a small defeat in simple games. This is due to the influence of social media and mobile gadgets which are causing dismay and phobia amongst people.
