I can understand why Tim is working min wage job now. His attitude ensures he will never make it in this world. Sad middle-aged man.

To Graham the millionaire. Statistically not everyone can be rich, it's literally impossible.

Okay. Before I even watch this, I'm just going to say that both work hard. Thy types of work is different.
It's like saying "Which more more fruit? Apples or oranges?

You can’t blame someone’s parents for making money and then designating it to them once they die. It’s either give it to the deferral government or let your children continue your business.

Tim is onto something. I used to also believe that "anyone can be successful if they work hard enough," but then I learned about the myth of meritocracy in a sociology course. Sure, anyone of any income bracket of any race of any gender can become rich. But statistically, the rich is much more likely to become richer than those who started poor. Graham and other self-made millionaires are part of this lucky statistic and I'm so proud of their accomplishments, but not just "anyone" can be where they are now.
What about the kids who don't have parents who speak English? Or grew up without a mom/dad? Or grew up abused? Or grew up with substance abuse in the home? Or lived in a van? Without access to proper hygiene that contributed to years of bullying and loneliness? Or what about the kids who grew up in the "slums"? Or the kids who grew up in a non-developed country, in a violent community?
Is it fair to to say that "anyone can be successful if they work hard enough"? It depends. To Graham, success is measured by the millions he has in the markets. To the bullied kids from the slums with deadbeat dads who struggle even knowing how to read, success is measured by being able to pay their bills and having a roof over their head.
Knowledge is power. Graham and other self-man millionaires have access to this knowledge, which is outstanding and I'm so happy they've found the tricks to their success.
But I wished they'd understand this myth of meritocracy: that not everyone has access to this knowledge or even have the priorities to use this knowledge of working both smart and hard. Sometimes, people are stuck in a seemingly-endless loop of poverty. Outside resources can help them leave this loop, but it's incredibly difficult and is high risk.
The statistics of the myth of meritocracy are fascinating. If you're interested in learning more and learning an insightful perspective, I recommend the scholarly book "The Meritocracy Myth" by Stephen McNamee and Robert Miller Jr. It's a sociology book, but I'm an engineer and still quite thoroughly enjoyed it.

I think that what Graham doesn’t understand is that he had the luxury of time that a dad working a full time job wouldn’t have. He had the time to be able to go to open houses every weekend without having to worry about feeding a family. There are more intangible luxuries besides money and connections.

But not everyone will be rich. In fact, most people won't even come close. That's a necessity of capitalism. Most people must be poor in order for it to work.

"I worked for everything I earned" is not the best phrasing for what I believe they meant. Everyone everywhere has worked for everything they've earned; it's presupposed in the sentence that whatever it is they've gained was something earned by the individual in question. Each participant involved should be walking forward for that statement.

 I also believe earning 'everything' one has gained is also a statement which is not likely to be true for anyone. Anyone who lives in America is deriving a societal benefit by existing within a first world culture. The opportunities to earn enough money for it to equal some benchmark of wealth is predicated on many conditional factors that extend beyond the scope of personal effort, substantial though that effort may be. Making many sacrifices to position oneself for millionaire status is sure to be the case for any millionaire but that idea isn't the one being postulated.

Tim, the community organizer, much respect to you for your ability to see the context surrounding the questions being asked and having very wise responses.

Most people aren't in the predicament to take risks. Taking a risk could set you back more then before. If you're a teen living under your parents roof and they can support you while you take those risks then yeah your outcome would be better

I think becoming rich isn't just based off of how smart or how hard you work. I believe there is a certain level or luck to it. ESPECIALLY is entertainment type careers.

See these millionaires though, if they had failed, they had parents they could fall back on, even to just move back in with them....some people don’t have that. Not everyone has the basic resources to become a millionaire.

"Anyone can become rich if they work hard enough" not if you don't have the know-how, tools, or mindset. Just the fact that poverty still exists kinda proves that.
Also I think it depends on your circumstances in addition.

so, im not sure if i'm the only one who observed this, but if you really pay attention to the bald gentleman with the beard, he actually contradicted himself about 3-4 times on how he answered and identified with the questions. Major props for everyone for being honest and sharing their personal story. The mind is a powerful thing, use it to better yourself and your surroundings.

Some of these people really need to look at life with another perspective.
Life is not fair. Hardwork doesn't always equal money, there's a ton of luck involved. Someone who lives in a third world country born into a poor family can have as much "hope" and "believe in themselves" and "never give up" but in the end, life is not fair and white millionaires telling their stories about hardwork doesn't mean it can be like that for everyone.

Obligated to be charitable, no one should be obligated, in fact I think people are more willing to give when their isn’t someone saying they have to or it’s their responsibility simply because they have a big bank acct.

Just because you were poor and managed to make a lot of money, doesn't mean ANYONE could have done that. How this isn't obvious to these smart seeming millionaires baffles me. You still have to be born with the required intelligence, and a thousand other things that are out of your control.

For capitalism to function there will always have to be someone at the bottom.
So no, working harder doesn’t translate to wealth. If everyone worked harder and smarter they all can’t be rich, because then everyone would be the same and that would be socialism.

I think we should rephrase the phrase "Work Hard". Should be "Work Strong, work smart" or "work hard, spend smart". Something on the lines of a hard work ethic but invest your money wisely.

It’s funny how being wealthy is a taboo to the regressive left. If you watch Graham’s videos, he most likely lives a much more disciplined (financially) lifestyle than the people that make much less than him.

The bald guy has such a loser mentality. He sounds to me like he is rationalizing why he has to be miserable no matter what. No dude, instead of thinking of reasons why its impossible, think of how it could be possible.
