On rhe day of high school graduation, some have had jobs while others have never worked.
At this moment in life, this high school has a number of students, people joining the unemployed.
Take a look at your highschool graduates. Besides those that have died, what happened to your class economically?
I went to school with 154 kids from 1st to 12th grade. I'd say 10% have passed away. 80 % are middle class, making about $25-75k.
5% are making over $75k, a few easily making $200k+. The rest are in jail or homeless.
12 years we all went to school. Same teachers, same education. Guess why there are incomes of $200k going to those few. How about $75k?
Most were the top 10% at graduation. This is HS. Others busted their butts.
At the reunion, all you have to do is listen to what choices people made to be making 25-75. It's even more noticable when they tell you what their doing after the party.
Most actually are enjoying life, despite maybe some grumbling...but their current choices haven't changed their lot in life because it is a repeat.
Why are people voted most likely to succeed then? Most are that way now. Behavior, action or no action.
My 401 made $. Great.
Oh, If you give me $100 and I give you $105, I am out $5.
