Millionaires under 30

I just watched a small segment on CNBC about some of the top investors are under 30. I'm 29 and have for about 10 years been an on/off trader and market enthusiast. It just makes me wonder about ambition. Which is the main factor of those under 30 (or even 40) that allows them to be successful. It really boils down to that...along with some organizational skill. Organized ambition is what built the country, discovered the "new world", built the atom-bomb. There's a quote that often seems to embroil me rather than encourage, but "you've got the same number of hours in your day as Newton, Einstein, Dylan, Da Vinci, Magellan, Franklin, Washington, even Bush." Okay, that's not exactly the quote, but it's something like that. Anyway, use the hours.
