Did your parents program your success level into you before you were 7?

Success is not necessarily an inherited personality trait as the drive to be successful is, in my opinion, invariably a congenial part of an individual's psyche.

This can be observed in larger families in which most things are constant, such as same parents, same domestic environment etc., but only one family member has the ambition and ability to be successful.

What success is and is not, cannot be defined for me by people who are looking to exploit me. Your problem is that you began letting other people dictate to you what success is. From having conversed with you it seems evident that you were always too busy looking for whose arse to brown-nose to ever question whether it was worth it.

Life's failures will always try to attribute their lack of achievement on their impoverished upbringing and lack of opportunity.

The opportunities are there for anyone to exploit if they so wish and have the drive and ability to do so.

The children of the more wealthy will, in general undoubtedly receive a better education than their less privileged peers but, as I realized early on in my career, they lack the knowledge of what it was like to be desperately poor and the experiences which such an existence brings.

So, I feel I have an advantage over them as I know what it's like to be clothed in rags, have holes in my shoes and no food in my belly for sustained periods of time but they don't.

When I occasionally mix with the well heeled set I feel smug in the knowledge that I know more about life than they do and I can use my more extensive life experiences to my advantage.

In the main I just enjoy the fruits of my self-made, modest wealth with my family and a few lifelong friends.

Instead of bellyaching and feeling resentful and sorry for themselves the whingers should get their thinking caps on and start to try to improve their lot.

If they don't wish to join the rat race and remain lying on the sofa farting then that's fine, but leave the hyper-achievers alone.

Lol. You are a bitter, mean and lonely person. If that is success then give me failure every time!

Your problem is that you just don't listen. Being exploited by capitalists who are looking for a cheap workhorse is not an "opportunity". Like most right wingers, all you seem to do is frame language (i.e. "opportunity" and "success") in ways which are compatible with your own belief structure, while purposefully and deliberately failing to even acknowledge the controversy and debate surrounding the language you are using. That indicates that you are irrational and have no intention of being rational.

In the main you come here to flaunt your supposed wealth and rub it in the faces of those less fortunate than yourself, because you desperately want to believe that being wealthy makes you better than those people. But the reality is that you are just one more stupid fuck who fell for the gold at the end of the rainbow.
