"It seems as if some of the luckiest among us have no stinking clue how lucky they have been." - volucris


They are under the illusion that everything good that has come to them has been all of their own doing.

I highly suspicion that is not the case. It's like playing cards and getting dealt a good hand. I suspect even drive and ambition are genetically controlled, that coupled with a few lucky breaks, good teachers, stability in school, environment, and at the end of the game you win the hand and get to keep the pot.
