Yet still others – using the same principles
they learned from the same sources – aren’t doing very well.
Some even went bankrupt.
What’s the difference?
It is really luck? Take two people.
They can even be a set of twins born of the same parents, with similar backgrounds, experience, and education.
Give them both the same set of tools.
Let’s say you give them both a shiny new hammer, a box of nails, and a few planks of wood.
What will you discover? One will do well. The other may not.
One may build a dog house. The other may not build anything at all, saying “I’m not a carpenter.”
One may build a lemonade stand and go into business.
The other may build a stool and sit on it.
Again, what’s the difference?
These perennial questions are perhaps more timely than ever.
