Many of the rich have the focused motivation and intelligence necessary to create a path to wealth.
Take my brother,for instance. He is very focused. Even as a 10 year old he set goals for himself to become the millionaire that he is today. It's not for everyone. Take myself for instance, I'm not motivated about creating wealth. I have a comfortable lifestyle which I am satified with. Many people are very materalistic, unlike me. Materialism can create jealousy and envy. I hear envy is one of the 7 deadly sins. President Obama is encouraging envy of others to make us unhappy with ourselves. Government holds no responsibility in making you wealthy or even happy. It's the individual's responsibility in creating the future that they can be happy with. The sooner people can figure that out on their own the more likely they will be in doing something about it,right!?
