What Greensat said is very true. Its very hard to surround yourself with people who bring you up. Heck, very few people surround themselves with anybody else anymore. Self-discipline is more important, and more lacking, than ever in our culture. We'd rather watch "The Biggest Loser" than get our own self up, educate ourselves on what to do and eat, and do it.
"That person is so lucky to have been born with the genes to look like that." no, that person was blessed to develop the self-discipline to bust butt to achieve that phyisique. And I've been on the first portion of that argument myself before, too. "If I can change, and you can change, everybody can change!"
