They can be the same too.
There are many successful people out there. But honestly, I bet more than 90% of them are successful because of their good/comfortable family background, therefore giving them the many opportunities other people fought so hard for their lifes for, and still not getting it.
When you’re up there, armed with riches and degrees or masters or whats not, don’t talk with your nose pointing up to the ceiling. What makes you think that given the same opportunity and privilege, they won’t be as good as you? Or even better than you?
Go think about it.
