I'm sure you will agree with me that the easiest way to be successful is when you have someone or people who re already successful and re ready to help and support you too. The reason why a poor person have to struggle and suffer for so long before eventually becoming successful is because he doesn't have people who can put him through, people who re experience in such field he/she is venturing into. Such people who can support their dreams financially and otherwise. When you lack all these your way to success becomes a very long journey.
Does it surprise you why the rich families keep getting richer? Because whoever is under them can easily be shown the secret of making success as early as possible.
We have friends, brothers and sisters who have succeeded in one way or the other but majority of people will never show you the right way. If you ask them, how did you do this? Most answers will be it's God. Yes it's God no doubt but you did other things.
Human beings re very selfish animal. Sometimes we feel unsecured to tell people outside our families what we know that can help them. Some people don't help because they feel the person might overtake them and become greater. Some think after I help him he won't be humble to me any longer, some want people to remain poor and always beg them for help. Some want people not to be in their class so anything they say becomes final.
This is one of the reason the rich only help the rich because they don't want so much competition.
In all this, thank God for the few who re willing to help people not minding who they re or where they come from.
