Life Is Harder Than Ever Before

There has never been a time in which the need for a LIFE COACH has been greater. Life is just too tough to go through it without some help; some direction; some encouragement; some perspective.

Life is harder today than 40 years ago … and it’s not just the twenty-somethings saying that, their parents agree

  • 68 per cent say things are tougher for modern twenty-somethings
  • Less job security and sky high house prices among reasons
  • 41 per cent of those in their twenties experience regular stress

Raised on rationing and under the threat of a nuclear war, older generations have loved to grumble about the easy ride enjoyed by youngsters today at one point or another.

But it would seem that despite the improved working conditions, freedom and vast array of ways to splash the cash, life for young people has never been tougher.

A surprising study of 4,000 people across two generations found that not only does the current younger generation think their parents had it easy, the over-50's agree.

Despite the consumer revolution in personal technology, comparatively bigger salaries and better working conditions, those in their twenties say they face a more significant range of threats to happiness and contentment. 

Stress is a huge problem for today's twenty-somethings, with 41 per cent saying they experience regular or constant stress. Just 15 per cent said the same 40 years ago, with half saying they never got stressed at all.

"When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goal, adjust the action." 
–Confucius
