It has nothing to do with luck, nor talent (though I am quite talented both as a student and an employee). It's about what you value more. I never won the lottery, collected a trust fund or inheritance, and I never really made a ton of money working for either the stadium or the movie theaters.

I rent. I have one car which has almost 200,000 miles on it, and if we didn't need it for our kids, I'd give that away, as well.

However, I can name every one of my 3 year old's MILLION favorite characters and toys. I can carry on a conversation with him and understand every single thing that comes out of his mouth. My marriage has never been happier.

No thank you, I'm living the life. Jealousy is not in my nature.
