Not to play devil's advocate, but this mentality is what eventually creates the need for a new company, new procedures, new parameters thus a new set of opportunities for that scenario. For example, it is quite common to see family operations of many things be it farms, businesses, etc to last three generations. The first scrimps, saves and builds. The second has the savings from the first generation and generally enlarges the operation. The third generation knows nothing of the scrimping and back breaking work, has had all the advantages, didn't work their way up, BOOM all gone! Split up amongst a bunch of new/younger farmers allowing the opportunity to grow again in a different family. So in a way, it is nature's way of eliminating the bad.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
