My Dad would always show me and lecture us.... "notice how those people are reading books and newspapers?" and during the flight we'd be told that if we worked, read books, and did smart things...well maybe then we could grow up and sit up there if we wanted.

Same here. My parents were always quick to point out that if I wanted this or that, I had to work for it. I can't even count the number of times I heard my mother say, "God helps them who help themselves."
