Programmers from Sicily created a model that allowed them to determine who and how becomes rich and successful. It turned out that the key to career and financial take-off lies in the plane of God’s craft. People reach their heights in mass because of a coincidence.
According to Naked Science, there are 1 thousand virtual people living in the computer program. They needed to survive 40 conventional years together. 80 percent of residents received 20 percent of capital, and the remaining 20 percent – 80 percent of the remaining money.
The settlers needed to build a career. Some flew up in a flash, some were stuck in the same financial situation. Some people constantly lost everything and could not achieve anything.
Observers of the experiment looked at the lucky ones. It turned out that almost all of them in the virtual program of life presented gifts, which allowed to climb to the very top of the career ladder. Such gifts were useful acquaintances or extremely necessary skills at the moment.
Professor of the University of Catania in Sicily Alessandro Plucino noted that the role of luck, unfortunately, is almost not taken into account in the matter of success.
He also draws attention to the fact that many very good ideas are dissolved in reality, because their developers were not lucky enough to be next to the investor who could get the idea and hurry to invest money in it.
