When you do not have to struggle and work hard for the things that you achieve in life it is much more likely that you will take these for granted and not truly value them. When you must work hard in order to persevere and achieve your desired goals then you will be more likely to value the things that you have earned and take care of them. Many of the richest people in the world make their offspring and family members work hard and do not give them everything. Warren Buffett is a good example. He has pledged to leave most of his wealth to charity, and has talked about how important it is for individuals to achieve things on their own in order to build confidence and self esteem.
