Everyone dreams of striking it rich, right? And to become rich, you need a lot of smarts, discipline and a strong proclivity for hard work. This is sometimes true and sometimes not. Some people never have to dream of striking it rich because they are just born that way and never have to work a day in their lives. Others are born with nothing, but climb the ladder of success through hard work, smart ideas, and maybe just a little bit of luck. Here are four of the top ways the wealthiest people in America came to have millions.
Clearly, this is the easiest, as well as the quickest way anybody gets rich. Obviously this is a little like a lottery ticket – in the lottery of life, some people are born into money and others aren’t.

Not every 1 percenter had to earn his or her riches, sometimes it is just a matter of being in the right place at the right time or more appropriately put, in the right family!
