It just comes across to me as motivational speaker claptrap. I know all this already, hearing it told dramatically doesn't change anything.
And, artistically, the foreshadowing was so strong and the theme so common I pretty much knew where it was going at "my grandmother taught me how to play the game monopoly". The guy we hear in the video has a slightly annoying voice with the speech patterns of a southern preacher - many short phrases pinned together. I've just personally never been a fan of that rhythm, just seems to be stalling to me.
Just my thoughts.
"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
