It's all genetics boyos.
"Acute sleep deprivation does not induce deficiency of GH release in 24 h. In sleep-deprived participants, GH secretion was increased during the day, which compensated for the blunting of the major sleep-related pulse. Whether a threshold of GH secretion is needed to produce its physiological effect is unclear. Nevertheless, these results argue against the common belief that sleep disorders in children, in pathological cases or in response to adverse environmental influences, can inhibit growth through a daily GH deficit. Care should be taken, however, in extrapolating these results to children, in whom sleep-deprivation tests such as ours cannot be done for ethical reasons. Nevertheless, the results challenge this much publicised concept, based on case reports5 rather than on epidemiological studies."

This is highly complex and still widely debated but people are forgetting one of the most important variables: LUCK. Over time (a long fucking time) luck doesn't matter because it balances out (look up the relationship between expected return and standard deviation if you want to see why).
Think of each hand in blackjack as a persons life. For successful genetic strands, there will still be many many fuckup hands (incels) but the genetic strand will still be successful in the long term if it is 'good' genes.
If you want a metaphor, life is a game of fucking russian roulette, good genes mean you get to play with more chambers in the cylinder, good environment means you get to use less bullets in the chambers (never reaching zero). So, good genes and environment means you get to play on more favorable terms but you are never safe from getting your brains blown out. So all we can do is spin the cylinder, put the muzzle against our heads, hold our breaths. And pull...
