    Working hard to succeed is not "privilege."

    Enjoying the fruits of your ancestors' hard work without having to do hard work yourself is privilege.

    You are privileged if you actually have parents who care enough and are equipped to even give you a chance to know how to work hard to succeed.

    It's a lot easier to work for success when your ancestors put you on third base.
