    A study in contrasts yet again- why causes youth from solidly middle, upper middle, & even upper

    classes to be adults who can be described as middling, &/or failing adults, even descending into one or several levels into the next & succedent lower socioeconomic classes while youth from lower, working, & lower middle classes ascend from their humble socioeconomic origins, oftentimes OUTSTRIPPING the former youth socioeconomically?  YES, it happens.  I have SEEN it.  Have you see a classmate, family member, or friend from a lower socioeconomic background than yours become MORE successful than you while you're middling or worse?

    Success is relative.  There is success in different arenas of life.  For instance, there is family success, which could mean marriage and children.  There is financial success.  There is health which might not seem like a type of success but if you lose your health it doesn't seem so lucky.  Of course, people have more successful times of their lives as well.  For instance lets say in your 30s you are making money but you stop to have a baby.  That can affect your money, but you are not less successful as a person overall.
