people who wrote “how to be successful” articles

originally tweeted on twitter

I guess I want to subtweet that people who wrote “how to be successful” articles doesn’t seem to have a sense of how much privilege, luck and survivorship bias they have.


I used to be that way. Dropped out of school, somehow managed to be relatively “successful” in terms of career, thought if I could do it, anyone could. It is tough, because there is a desire to give people hope, and yet there’s so much luck involved.
