I firmly believe that while all people are created equal, their choices tend to separate them. Choices are the steps that we take in one direction or the other. Sometimes life is forgiving and sometimes it isn’t. Sometimes people are born into privileged circumstances and do nothing with that advantage because they make poor choices in response to privilege. Some people are not so lucky and through a pattern of good choices change their circumstances. The secret sauce to success is not the circumstances we are born into. It’s the choices we make in response to those circumstances.
