Age and maturity are not necessarily correlated.  Uncorrected bad behavior can last a lifetime.  Unfortunately, there is no reparenting track for the spoiled.

Spoiled people have distorted views of reality.  When something doesn’t work or there is failure it may be part of the success process.  Perseverance and failures play a large and realistic role in achieving success.  It’s when you quit, blame, pout or lash out before success can take shape that reveals the deficits of maturity.

If you dare to try and build something, it will undoubtedly require perseverance.  Things don’t work out perfectly.  People fail.  Systems fail.  Life throws curve balls.  The last thing we need is a spoiled adult: ungrateful, petty, brittle, fearful, unrealistic, impotent, blaming.

Want more wins in your business and life?  Dismiss spoiled behavior.  Look for customers that are grateful, persevering and mature.  Associate with partners and friends that believe, have vision and persevere.  Great things can be accomplished without the anchor weight of spoiled hearts.
