I guess someone gave you influence and opportunity. But who made the difference?
I understand your point of view, but i do not see the letter "I" in the word "team", maybe this is the point. A quarter back, only becomes great if he has, someone to catch the ball, other wise he just some trowing a bit of leather (sorry, no nothing about american football, it is the quarter back who throws?, and is the ball made of leather?)
Capitalism (business), is some what like a lotto ticket, you do have to be in to win.
