Is this a false belief "If I become good at programming I can get a good job and have a good life"?
I know people who thought that in college.

It's not enough. A person needs to look for employment and be able to communicate, and possibly move to where jobs are located. A college degree is the prerequisite and demonstrates an ability to do a job. Another issue is that although there are about 300,000 computer programmers, the use of cloud remote services and flexible use software has reduced the number needed. It is a field in decline, known for a few years.
A person needs to be flexible.

Its possible, but the good life tends to come from working hard early in your career. Not just getting a good job, but exceeding at the first few jobs you have.

Sure it's true but for the ones who are good at programming and get a good paying job and have good work ethics, they may be able to enjoy their life a bit more making a decent salary and taking vacations and having fun money and less worry.
