One of the weaknesses of presenting successful people is often it is people in show business or even sports. Very few people can legitimately hope to achieve this sort of success.

I am often disappointed that more attention is not given to successful people in business or science or medicine or law.

People who succeeded because of school studies, or those who succeeded even if they were good in schoo.l
