Do our families mentor?

Malcolm Gladwell debates whether or not some kinds of success are actually based on individual merit. He argues that “these kinds of personal explanations of success don’t work. People don’t rise from nothing. We do owe something to parentage and patronage” (19). Do you agree with this statement? Do our families and the people outside our families who choose to mentor us mean more than the work we put into our developing our own success.?
