Your reading skills are less than pathetic.
"Just because a game is rigged doesn't mean one can't win. It means the odds of winning are longer."

If you truly think going from the bottom 10% to the top 10% take ONLY hard work and perseverance, you need some life experience. It takes a bit of luck, timing, right place at the right time.

As I said, if hard work and perseverance guaranteed success more companies would make it rather than not.

The game is rigged. That is not an injustice to anybody. It is not right or wrong, good or bad. It simply is. Accept it and move on. Accept that in a given circumstance there is never a truly "level playing field". Sometimes the odds might be in your favor, other times not. Is it fair? Hell no. But anybody who ever told you life was fair was a freakin liar.
