Anxiety is the handmaiden of contemporary ambition because livelihoods and steem depend on at least five unpredictable elements, five reasons not to count on either attaining or holding on to a desired position within the hierarchy.
1. Dependence on Fickle Talent
2.Dependence on Luck
3.Dependence on an Employer
4.Dependence on an Employer’s Profitability
5.Dependence on the Global Economy
