I find it interesting since I have had the honor to work with some great folks who came from humble beginnings and through a combination of hard work, dumb luck and a lot of perspiration became successful in spite of themselves and their ( what seemed like ) best efforts to screw things up.

I have also worked with the other types who got it the old fashioned way and never appreciated what they had or how difficult life was for their predecessor/ benefactor.

I learned a lot from both types but prefer the former
