There is a very popular idea being pushed in America right now that success is really just being lucky. The idea claims that LeBron James was just lucky he has his genes… Not that he trained hard every day for a lifetime. The idea also claims a successful entrepreneur just got lucky to have perfect circumstances to lead to where they are.

I think this idea is clearly false. But I can debate that another day.

The question I wonder is what is the motivation of people pushing this idea? I have a feeling it is people who have failed in life not wanting to take responsibility for their actions. Or worse – it’s people who want to take from those who are successful and need a justification for their theft…
