Miracles and expectations 

The 90s kids treated the blackberries, the iPhones, and the playstations as a miracle. The 00s kids treat them as a given. The former can live without it. The latter can’t breathe without it. 

A manager wins the league with a shit team and they call it a miracle. The same manager struggles to win the league again and they question his abilities. 

You take a long flight and they announce there’s wifi and everyone treats it as a miracle. The wifi disconnects and everyone starts growling as if it was always there. Their expectations ruined their experience. (Tony Robbins’ example in almost every other conversation of his)

You and I need to differentiate between the miracles and the givens.
