This infographic provides some valuable facts about the early stages of various world leaders, as well as icons who come from considerably humble backgrounds. The chart showcases where they were and what they have become. It is a common misconception that important people in history come from privileged backgrounds and ease their way into their positions through connections.

The truth of the matter is, the most successful and important people in the world typically come from very humble backgrounds and have had to work very hard to get to where they end up. This makes sense because one generally appreciates what they have once they earned it, and thus try even harder to maintain and enhance their position.

Benjamin Franklin, Bill Clinton, Rosa Parks, and Margaret Thatcher are all examples of self-made successes who come from unlikely backgrounds.
