you don't get rich working hard. you get rich being born into it or bullshitting your way to it.
Depends on what you mean by "rich". If you mean being in the top 0.1%, you're mostly right. However, you can certainly set yourself up for a very comfortable life by choosing the right vocation, working hard, and paying attention to where your money is going. Not so much by slacking through school, turning in a half-ass performance at a job you hate, wallowing in victimhood, and spending all your money distracting yourself from your problems.
