The Generations

6 min readAug 9, 2023

“Every one expects to go further than his father went; every one expects to be better than he was born and every generation has one big impulse in its heart — to exceed all the other generations of the past in all the things that make life worth living.” — Wiliam Allen White

Generation Beta * early 2025s–2039

“The Generations” — Wikipedia

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.” — William James

“The Generations” — Wikipedia

“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” — Abraham Lincoln

According to Wikipedia, “A generation refers to all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively. It can also be described as, “the average period, generally considered to be about 20–⁠30 years, during which children are born and grow up, become adults, and begin to have children.”

There are many classification of Generations as follows:

Greatest Generation: Born 1901–1924

Silent Generation: Born 1925–1945.

Baby Boomers: Born 1946–1964.

Generation X: Born 1965–1980.

Millennials: Born 1981–1996.

Generation Z: Born 1997–2012.

Generation Alpha: Born 2013–2025.

Generation Beta: Born 2025–2039

Each Generation classification has its very own specific description however there are certainly, some anomalies within each group.

Most importantly among all of these groups is the fundamental XY syndrome that is consistent from one generation to another.

Let me explain.

“XY Syndrome”

I call it the XY Syndrome

The X represents where an individual is currently in all five areas of life, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically, financially, and the Y represents where one would like to be.

The red colored section prior to the fork represents a very decisive moment. Each generation regardless of classification, meets this fork in the road along their journey.

Life always provides us with opportunities that are cleverly disguised as problems, misfortunes etc.

So how do we move past these supposed obstacles and grasp our opportunity?

How do we do this?

Here it is.

You strategically move from your X to your Y.

How do you get from X to Y?

It’s really child’s play. You simply erase all the stuff that doesn’t work as in the illustration below. However, if everyone keeps moving my eraser, how am I supposed to erase all the stuff that doesn’t work?

Are some people in your life continually moving your eraser?

“XY Syndrome”

If you notice the Y above, Y is part of the X. All that you have to do is to grab your eraser and start erasing anything that has to do with the X. As you do this, the Y appears and everything in your life is better, clearer and more manageable.

Your own personal X factor is anything that immobilizes, derails or prevents you from growing intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically or financially .

Results speak for themselves.

As your belief increases, your internal program changes and you change one day at a time. You will change but you will encounter an enormous amount of persistence from the enemy. Call the enemy whatever you want.

I prefer to call it the X factor. It will do whatever it takes to bring you down therefore we need to employ a game changer program that will absolutely diffuse any efforts by the X factor to derail or immobilize you.

Your X factor paradigm will do anything to continue to control you and your desired results. Don’t believe it? Just look at your results.

Your Y is anything that you want to be, do or have more in your life.

We’re going to talk about erasing the stuff that doesn’t work in your life thus allowing that inner Y to appear. Its appearance will manifest into incredible, joyous and Godsome happenings in your life.

The more that you understand this concept, the more that your own personal Y will show up right on schedule. Your own personal Y is synonymous with unveiling disguised opportunities.

Many well-intentioned people suffer hardships that are not easy to overcome but they remain stuck as no one ever taught them to pick up their eraser and start erasing part of the X that hides their inner Y.

Everyone was endowed at birth with this inner Y. I never knew this until I was taught this invaluable information that has altered the direction of my life proactively.

As soon as you understand this XY concept, opportunities will begin to show up and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Are you ready?

Pick up your eraser and let’s get moving.

Regardless of your Generation group, the above is consistent with each group as no Generation wants to be stuck and going nowhere fast.

Onward and Godward so your life can begin to be more Godsome.

All the best.

The best is yet to come for you.

Carpe momentum.
