People who are born poor have a lot of chance to stay poor (less education, jobs that don't pay well, wrong people to hang out with,...)
Rich people likewise but visa versa.
It's also known that we are most likely to hang out with people of the same environment.
What if a poor person hangs out with rich people, does it motivate them to become more succesful?
Very good one =) I think you'll be surprised how much influence that will have on relationships with others.
