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.

      If you went to school at Stanford, Caltech, MIT, etc...sure, probably the fast track to the good life.

    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.
