To succeed in life, you just need a dream, strong enemies and a couple of Grand mistakes. A dream is a flow of energy, and enemies, problems, and mistakes will create dams for you to accumulate energy and train.
All people are equal in the sense that for success in life, everyone needs the same thing, something that is not lacking. Success consists of dreams, strong enemies, grandiose mistakes, and insurmountable obstacles.

And it's not easy for them too, but somehow people manage to cope with it...
