The concept of the underdog that appears limitations and beats the possibilities to end up being something remarkable is a glamorized principle, created in the old Western misconceptions that supported the Gold Rush in addition to the “rags- to- riches” books that managed the Gilded Age, however it is a basically flawed and unreasonable presumption.
