Do you feel your fate is already predetermined by your lineage — your parents and ancestors? Or do you feel you are in the driver’s seat in determining your own success? I think that you are in the driver's seat in determining your own fate. Although if you are born into a rich family or a poor family it may be hard to ascend to more money If you are poor or fall if you already have a lot of money. I really think that your fate is determined on how much ambition you have and how hard you work at bettering yourself.
Do you think you will be better or worse off than your parents? In what ways? Why I hope that I will be better off than my parents. But realistically I'll probably end up in the same class as them.
The author makes the argument that “the compulsion to strive, the talent to prosper and the ability to overcome failure are strongly inherited.” Do you think you inherited these qualities? Or do you think you had to develop them on your own?nI think I inherited these qualities in some ways, like if I think something is really important to me I won't quit even if I fail a few times.
