    Is it just me, that I have the feeling I'm missing something after 'remain'?

    1. Drug use
    2. Other addictions (tobacco, alcohol)
    3. Not knowing the differences between needs and wants.
    4. Spending on wants,  instead of needs.
    5. Lack of self control, personal discipline (relates to the previous two).
    6. Lack of  self-esteem.
    7. Lack of education.
    8. Lack of motivation, purpose in life.
    9. Lack of positive role models.
    10. Making excuses instead of plans.
    There are probably more.

    There is only one reason, placing the locus of control outside of one's self. All actions belong to the agent. All actions entail an opportunity cost. The consequences of choices are the agent's alone. One may choose to skip school and the resulting ignorance belongs to the agent. One may choose to work hard and study hard, the resulting knowledge and expertise belongs to the agent.

    There it is, one reason. One is responsible for the actions one takes, no one else can be and all of life is an aggregation of choices.

    Therefore, the sole reason people become anything is that they accept the truth that all of their actions belong, solely, to them.

      Bangladesh, Honduras, Northern Ireland: Are the poor in these countries responsible for their poverty because of their own choices? The inner cities of U.S.: Newark, Chicago, New Orleans: Are they responsible too? Fascinating .

      And there it is, when one rejects that all action is the product of choice and all choices are personal and all life is an aggregation of choices, then the world looks like you see it. I think that much bitterness must ruin your dinner.

      OK, I get it. I'm the one who's responsible for world poverty, and hunger.  No it doesn't ruin my dinner at all. I have no remorse. Even more fascinating!
