Supply and demand. There are people out there who are rare, like my Ferrari, who are more productive than others, who are making a great difference, achieving great things and as such are in great demand and short supply.
As such, they command more income, more influence, more of what the average person does not have. They don’t look for short cuts, they are relentless in their work, they are not quitters, they are always getting better. and because of this they are in high demand and short supply.
