Why are some people very wealthy and some very very poor even though both work very hard?
What a thought-provoking question. Here are a few things that come to mind right away when I think about the people I know who are successful and those who aren’t.
Accident of birth: People who are born into wealthy or influential families with lots of connections are going to have a much easier path to success that someone born into a poor family or in a community with few opportunities.
Education: A person needs to be prepared to take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way, and the best preparation is education.
Lifestyle: Drugs and late night partying lead to lack of focus and exhaustion. Also, a reputation for a questionable lifestyle will limit the number of people willing to take a chance on you.
Basic intelligence and reasoning skills: It’s really not fair—and I know that life isn’t fair—but someone with low intelligence is going to have a hard time making choices that will help them get ahead in life and developing the skills they need to succeed.
Don’t worry, my friend. Even in a forest, trees of the same species are never of the same height.
The wealthy people do not work hard but they work smartly.
It's the background disadvantage often where I'm from. But I think mental attitude is another factor to this.
