I think it is more of lottery kind of deal. Yes you can be a genius or inhumanly gifted at something but there has to be a series of events that happen to go in your favor to become ultra successful. Take the NFL for example... Only 1% of the players see pay checks like Peyton Manning or Tom Brady and have as long of careers as they do. There have been countless players in the past that where as strong, gifted, smart, and hard working as the ultra successful players but maybe got drafted into a bad franchise or blew their shot with an off year. I still believe you should work as hard as you can and you will always get rewarded because luck comes to those who are prepared, but you can't flat out say "I am going to work hard and become as successful as Bill Gates..." that is unrealistic
