determination??

Do you guys think that people can become sucessful if they are very determined and work really hard to get to the top no matter how many times they get sent down to the bottom.

OR...

..do you believe that only a select few ever make it big and become sucessful and determination has nothing to do with it just being at the right place at the right time.

Im NOT talkin about the entertainment biz (acting, singing etc) but like becoming an executive or chief executive of a company.

Personally im not sure...but ive heard of a load of people who work their asses off all their lives and are extremely determined and get to the top...but i feel that some luck has something to do with it too.

(soz bout the loser thread just wonderin what makes people a success).

    Didn't someone once say 'Genius is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration'?

    Whoever it was, they're probably right IMO

    A massive amount of luck is involved but the hard work should be put into making sure when the opotunity arises you can take it.
