This is the best example to understand how such motivational posts manipulates human mind.
now if you put the man who is holder cylinder in a position where he needs money to feed his sick mother. he will never compare him self in such stupid way.
only your need drives you interest keep changing with the time you cant carry same interest lifetime but you needs are same for your lifetime.
what you think about this a person who is not able to feed his needs can he survive or overcome them by getting interested in other things ?
the logic is very simple to wash you need water to eat you need food and to survive you need to fulfill your needs first.
fulfilling your needs in the world only matters not fulfilling your interests.
