I think the first paragraph can be simplified. How about:
“1. Do you believe hard-work and talent should take you as far as possible in life? Do you believe it shouldn’t matter who your parents were or how good they were at making money? Do you believe it shouldn’t matter if you have the “right” social connections? Do you believe life is about you and what you do with it and not what your parents have done?”
It’s just a suggestion, maybe there could be an even better way to word it?
