is this saying is true ? people can work hard and move up in the world but it is easier if we have somthing to begin with ? this saying is appears to be true - the rich get more riecher and the poor gets more poorer - because it has something to do with proper mindset and finanacial intelligence ? on top of all this does anyone says life is fair?

True, the poor have to work hard to earn every penny while the really rich can just put the money in the bank (or invest it) and live off the interest. Your money works for you ;)

I do think this is true, but it does not always have to do with proper mindset and financial intelligence, although that is probably a big part of it. Many poor people can not afford to better their education (no matter if that is because they just plain can't afford to go to college, or they can't afford the time away from work to go to college-even if they could get help paying for it.) Without education, there is usually not much room for job advancement. Rich people have plenty of money to pay for the best education, and they wouldn't have to worry about taking time off of work to get an education since they are already rich. Some wealthy people also have "connections" with people in major companies to help them get jobs and such, but that is definitely not always (or even often) the case.
