    They have high-paying jobs, and/or they make very good investments (such as real estate), and/or they inherit it from parents who did. If you set yourself up to succeed by making smart decisions when you're in high school and college, you'll likely do well.

    Blue-collar workers can make $100,000 or more per year.  A nurse can make $70,000+.  The two working can make $140,000 or more per year.  They can save and invest to build an investment portfolio of $4 million+ by the time they retire.  They can live in a 5-bedroom, 3.5 bath house.  I know it can be done and it is not hard to do.

    They have good jobs and secure jobs.  They don't job hop and they generally have at least 6 years post high school education.
