There is an ancient Chinese proverb that goes like this: "A peasant must stand for a long time on a hillside with his mouth open before a roast duck flies in."
    Forget about roast ducks (gifts, lottery winnings, something for nothing, etc.) flying into your open mouth. The world is competition and struggle. Get your butt out of bed and create your future. Education, discipline and hard work will put roast duck in your mouth.
