    Or fifty things, so that one you are suited for is at hand.

    That high school with the interactive computer terminal? It had everything else a good high school has, also.

    Those are perfect examples of a general pattern that underlies great success - and lack of it. The lesson is not that people should whine about lack of opportunity. It's that they should not evaluate lack of success in entire groups of people as stemming from not having taken advantage of opportunity via hard work. Avoid assuming that people have had equivalent or comparable opportunity in life, is the recommendation. They haven't.

    The people on third base did not all have to hit triples to get there.

    Definitely true. There is certianly a disparity in available opportunities.
