Is it any wonder that many celebrity’s children go on to become celebrities in their own right, riding on the success of their parents, who are already popular and have become media favorites themselves? I mean, look at Miley Cyrus – would she have been anything without her famous dad?
And even when you hear about successful people who claim to have had it so bad growing up, they were lucky enough to have had some opportunity come up that they took advantage of. For instance: JK Rowling was actually an educated woman. She chose to go on welfare, so that she could hang out in a coffee shop all day, writing her book. Oh, and Bill Gates dropping out of college to start up his business? Well, his parents had enough money to put him back in if it failed. Even lesser known millionaires have claimed to be so poor growing up, but then met famous people while attending clubs or programs for the poor, and got their starts that way.
OK, so what about the average person, who goes to work like they are supposed to every day? That person doesn’t have time to be in all of the “right” places. They don’t have time to stop and take a break to work on something they dream about. They don’t make enough money to invest in anything, and make too much, according to the government, to qualify for any programs to better themselves. They are forced to work to pay taxes so that other people can take advantage of these programs. And they have cute talented kids, too, but they don’t have the money to invest in their kids’ futures.
Will there ever be any type of community programs that everyone can enjoy equally? Everyone deserves a fair chance. We all come into the world the same way. We all deserve the best and to be successful. Are we better off doing what is expected of us – going to school, getting a decent job, etc…? It’s enough to make you get on a “program” just to let you have the time to do what you really want. Oh, you suffer for a while, but it makes your rags to riches story better.
