And I have news for some people here. Most wealthy people below the age of 40 are not the first generations wealth creator. This doesnt mean that they did nothing commendable. This is a fact of life. Trump is a third generation property developer. Trump is a capable person too. They also win in charisma and behavior. Having not to worry about money since young gives you the ability to develop the charisma that average dudes wont have a chance.

Basically these rich descendants will either develop personalities like
-Charismatic assholes like trump who is like able in many aspects. (Ya I know some would hate him).
-Charismatic prince who knows literature, music, wine and art. These are the socially acceptable “perfect gentleman”.
You are 100% right. I remember of a scene from the show Avatar, where the princess overthrows a general and also steals his own little military simply by showing more power than him.

This is the quote: "I can see your whole history in your eyes. You were born with nothing. So you've had to struggle and connive and claw your way to power. But true power, the divine right to rule, is something you're born with. The truth is: they don't know which one of us is going to be sitting down on that throne, and which of us is going to be bowing down. But I know, and you know."

So I think what you said make so much sense, rich people just have that authority and charisma and self-assurance whereas poor have to prove themselves, and when they meet someone born like that, they don't even have a chance.

I don’t think you get my point in the way I want to put it in the context of my reply.

A lot of time being charismatic (as accepted by the mainstream society) is developing a lot of interesting skill sets that have no immediate financial goal. And the ability to live and talk a life as if money didn't matter too much is actually to have lots of money.

A hardworking dude working a 8-5 minimum wage job running a side hustle at night for a fastlane project has no interest, time or resources in develop a vast array of knowledge in literature, politics, golf and French wine.

if you don't push yourself in physical training then you're an idiot.

You know.. this is a great idea for a thread.. but a lot of the suggestions are pretty vague. Like stuff you see on those motivational posters in offices. It's not bad advice by and stretch, but I think more specific stuff would be more useful. Or at least give some background to the lessons.
