Another way of looking at an unconscious statement

They (parents, teachers, coaches...people) tell each generation when they're young that they're "the future." Many times this kind of pep-talking encourages attitudes of entitlement in the kids. The real "future" will be the ones who stop the speakers mid-sentence and say, "Ma'am, Sir, with all due respect, we can't be the future. We haven't earned it yet."
