It's true that you can't do an infinite amount of things, but there are infinite options in life. We need sleep but we still have a hell of a lot of time.
Okay, when you say that not everyone has the capability to learn that, perhaps that's true - but I would say that most do. And the very smart ones have an even greater capacity - so much so that, for them, rocket science is easy to learn.
You say that there are less than 2,000 billionaires in the world out of 7,000,000 - you could say the same about people that are on the leading edges of their fields in science. If someone simply devotes their life to something, they'll (virtually always) get it.
If you need strong connections, make them. If you need influential backers, find them. If you need to not fail at funding rounds, learn how not to. If you need a good idea that is sustainable, find one.
And so on and so forth. If you just go much further than everyone else, devote much more time than everyone else, learn much more than everyone else and simply do everything much better and with much more effort, you'll succeed.
It's simply that most people are weak/lazy. Just do everything better than everyone else.
Say there's a smart person who makes a lot of money and works 10 hours a day, researching how to better invest his money. You could simply look at him and say "I'm going to work 14 hours a day, and not only that, I'm going to learn how to use those 14 hours even better than he ever would, researching deeper, further, better" and the like.
If someone has strong connections, you can look at them and say "Well sir, I'm just going to go out there and find even better connections, and more of them, and build stronger links with them"
And so on. I'm just saying simple things but it shows how you can always succeed.
Like in school, if someone is always coming top of the class you could simply say "I'm going to do it even better" and you'll come out on top. If you couldn't do it at first (which you probably could), you could simply learn to be even smarter than that person.
And it's the same with many things in life, making billions included.
Nope. It's simply that most people are ignorant and share the same 'I can't do it, it's luck' view. It's not!
