Inb4 Reddit jumps all over this to explain how this is wrong and the primary ingredient in the recipe for success is luck.

It’s totally not an effort to excuse mediocrity. Not at all. You can only be successful if you’re born into it or lucky.

That’s the only way. Reddit told me.

All those hard working people, lucky. They didn’t do anything extraordinary. All their efforts? Useless. It was just luck.
