Think you will find that most successful business people are successful not because of luck but because they have the desire to work hard, work smart, well past the 9-5 and because they don't expect to be spoon fed stuff on a plate.
So what your saying is that everyone who isn't successful is basically a layabout, and its all their own fault? For their failure to grasp one of the plentiful opportunities for self-advancement in our utopian meritocracy?
No I'm not saying that, just that for most people in the UK the opportunities are there if you really want it. If you don't then fine but please don't whinge at those who have taken these opportunties, provide jobs for others (regardless whether minimum wage or not), and now as a result earn more than you do.
Many people if you ask them would want to be rich - some choose to work hard and take risks to get there, some choose to work hard but are content to work for someone else - making their company owners rich, a few are born with it, others want to be rich but decide to play the lottery and watch daytime telly instead.
Different courses for different horses, and before you ask, no I am not IDS or rich - but I don't resent those that have achieved this through hard work if that's what they want.
