The world has plenty of those who live off someone else’s effort. This is not dependent on economic status either.
Most entrepreneurs have to figure out how to create value with little or no resources. In the end, it’s probably a better scenario.

Don’t squander it.
No one owes you success. It can’t bestowed or inherited. It must be earned. A step up is a blessing.
