Mientras me Heredan
Let’s jump straight to the point, people in San Pedro are used to not having to work for things. Sure, this is a statement that is completely generalized, and there are some people that work all day and night to get to the place where they are now, but in most of the cases inside our ‘prestigious community’, our parents hand us money on a silver platter to spend thousands at nightclubs and travel luxuriously with our friends, all we have to do is pass our classes.
Multiple times have I heard people say, "Why should I try hard in school if I am going to end up working for my father?". Sadly, this is a reality for many Sampetrinos. The idea of us thinking that we don't have to move a finger to continue living a lavish lifestyle only dims our future prospects. Graduating or dropping out of college and going directly to inheriting a business that has a functioning system and a positive statistical future takes the living part out of life.
After graduating from college, one should explore the workforce and experience how difficult it is to actually obtain something. This brings previously unknown value to things that we take for granted. Once you actually have to work for something, especially when you start from nothing, you realize your brand new Mercedes is no longer worth a number out of your dad's bank account but countless hours of hard work. This is not implying that inheriting a business is a bad thing, but if people start taking what they have for granted and do not work to obtain what they want, life will most likely take an unexpected turn and put you in a situation you have probably not faced before. If an owner of a business does not know how to cope and come back from failure, the family legacy ends with a confident kid who took life for granted.
