It’s Not About Money or Connections

“It’s not about the money or connections. It’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone when it comes to your business. And if it fails, you learn from what happened and do a better job next time.” – Mark Cuban

Many people still hold the belief that it’s all about money and connections: According to a Pew Research poll in 2011, 46% of Americans believe they wealthy got wealthy “because they were born with money or they knew the right people.” On the other hand, only 43% believe that “hard work, ambition, or educations” are the reasons the rich got rich.

However, most studies have shown that two-thirds of today’s millionaires consist of hardworking and passionate people who belong to the middle-class families. Surprisingly, more Americans still have the belief that the rich owe their fortunes to their parents or elite social circles rather than hard work, ambition, and education! And despite the growing number of billionaires under 40 who started off as ordinary people, this skeptical view is most pronounced by people between the ages of 18 and 34.

The quote reminds us that success is not solely determined by financial resources or connections, but rather by the effort and dedication put into building and growing a business.
