Most people who ask this type of question is looking for some sort of pattern that they can replicate in order to be more successful.
I don’t have that type of answer. But I do have an definite answer, even if it’s not that useful:
All successful people are able to be successful because they were lucky at some point in some way. They were able to be on the fortunate side of statistical probability.
So success is not all hard work and talent. Success always includes a bit of luck. Hard work can make it more probable that someone is successful, but you can’t guarantee a certain amount success without just being lucky.
