North americans should be millionaires

People constantly complain about where they’re from, but they don’t really have a reference point to compare it to.

I remember hearing Drake talk about how he struggled to make it coming up, because Toronto wasn’t the type of place where there were a lot of opportunities.

Here’s Toronto…

Poor Drake, can’t imagine how he made it.

I also remember hearing LeBron James talk about how Cleveland was short on opportunities and nothing ever happens there.

Here’s Cleveland…

Quick someone start a save LeBron fund.

Here’s where I grew up…

In order to understand how terrible this place is we have to compare the populations.

Toronto: 6 million people

Cleveland: 390,000 people

My Hometown: 12,000 people

 

The funniest thing is, there’s far worse places than where I grew up, and people still make it in these regions.

If you live in any North American city, there’s no real excuse. Statistics say you’re richer than 90% of the world’s population from the day you’re born.

You’ve got some of the world’s greatest facilities and a huge population of people to work with/choose from/learn from.

The internet access is unrivalled and you’re constantly exposed to opportunities and wealth. The American Dream is something that’s even encouraged in kids.

 

This isn’t an attempt to grill all North Americans, in my opinion it’s the most ambitious continent in the world which is why they have such great cities in the first place.

But using location as an excuse when your city is home to millions of people, or when every single tool you could ever imagine is at your disposal, is ridiculous.

 

The Millionaire Next Door

In the book “The Millionaire Next Door” the author spoke about how first generation immigrants were highly more likely to become millionaires than second generation immigrants and so on as the generations passed.

The reason for this, was believed to be desensitisation. If you’ve grown up with everything you’d ever need, it’s easy to forget how lucky you really are.

If you grew up in a place where water and food were short and war was a constant feature, then somewhere like Toronto or Cleveland would look like heaven.

You’d probably take that opportunity with two hands and wonder why others were sitting around all day complaining.

This should be a lesson to anyone who believes they haven’t been dealt the best hand in life. Too many people believe they’re not born lucky, but simply being born in North America in the first place is one of the luckiest things that can happen to you.
