I am the 53%

My first job? I flipped burgers for $3.35 /hour.
I was happy and grateful to have the job.
I owe tens of thousands of dollars in student loan and credit card debt.... yet I blame no one else but myself for compiling these debts.
I have been working hard and paying down these debts for many, many years.
I know that Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, and Bill Gates are worth billions of dollars -- BUT -- I realize they earned that money by creating wonderful products that improved the lives of hundreds of millions of other human beings.
They didn't get it by sitting around on their asses, smoking dope, and bitching and moaning about how unfair life is.
I WISH I was as talented as Jobs, Buffett, and Gates.
But I'm not.
I'm just one of the 53% !!
