Survivorship Bias.

I like Mr Mustache but in one interview he relieved to have made all his wealth by buying numerous properties in Las Vegas during the crisis.

Edit: I think it's here https://www.madfientist.com/mr-money-mustache-interview/

This article is quite presumptuous - there are a lot of people who never had the luxury of being able to do any of that in their 20s. I was fortunate just to nab my first full time job at 28, and if there is anything people criticize me for today in my 30s, it’s that I work too much.

Some people have never been the victim of circumstance in their life it seems.
