Change: The midlife years can be a time of change for the 1950s and the seemingly limitless possibilities created a fascination with the world itself and a feeling of being special. Sense of entitlement: a generation, boomers are considered superior to others. Who have always assumed that life could have his way and that the rules were made for others, but not for them. Feel entitled to rewards and see themselves as winners. They expect success and can not accept failure. Need for control: the baby boomers need to feel safe and that are in control of life.
They have a difficult time dealing with uncertainty. Lifecycle management has much to offer in this field. Reflection: Baby Boomers have always valued introspection and the pleasure of asking questions . For most people, life at the age of 45 or 50 does not match the dreams I had at the age of 20 or 30. When people reach the age of 45 or 50 and even a little disappointed by their achievements and experiences, feelings may be aggravated by these factors of self-absorption, sense of entitlement and a need control. But there is also a positive side to this. The tendency to reflect and explore can help one look for new possibilities instead of being stuck with feelings of disappointment.
