3. People are rich because they are "lucky." Much wealth is inherited. Investing also involves

"luck." 36 years ago, which investment do you think would be better now? Sears, or a company created a few years earlier.."WalMart ? 35 years ago, which car do you think would sell better? Chevrolet or Toyota?...Also, did you think 35 years ago that there would be an "electric car company" started from scratch in 2003, and making lots of money selling "electric cars"? (Yes, Tesla is now making money)

One more to blow your mind....35 years ago, (1984 ok,) did you think that in 2019 you and most people would be carrying around a hand held computer with a TV camera in it? and also is your personal telephone that does not need to be hooked up to a line? (a computer like was shown in "Star Trek" but smaller (does not talk to you)
