Luck versus Hard Work

The other day I was browsing and saw some reviews on the popular new movie “Slumdog Millionaire”. Sad to say, I was shocked by some of the comments people had about the movie.

People were basically saying that the movie is stupid because it teaches us to rely on random luck ( in this case, a chance to appear on an TV game show ), instead of working hard.

I find the attitude that “with hard work you over come anything” to be full of shit.

Sorry but hard work does not get you very far if there are no opportunities. In this country we are spoiled with opportunities, but around the world, people are not that lucky.

So don’t go around thinking that people are poor because they are lazy. They are poor people they aren’t as lucky as you.
