This is extremely well put. There is a line in the movie "The Incredibles" where the villian says something to the effect that if everyone is special, than no one will be special. Since we all can't be wildly successful, let's bring down those who are to a level of mediocrity shared by the masses. Life is a bell curve. Some succeed wildly, the majority are average and some fail miserably. The failures typically owe it to risky behaviors, poor decisions/choices and blaming others. The successful typically owe it to hard work, intelligent decision-making and taking full responsibility for cause/effect.
