I suggest you read "Think and Grow Rich" (rich being both literal and metaphorical) by Napoleon Hill. Haven't finished it myself but it's an interesting concept if you approach it with an open mind.
Part of the book's goal is to help destroy the preconception that hard work leads to success. We all know there are people who work their butts off and haven't got much to show. I don't believe generally believe in success formulas but optimism, for example, seems a much more powerful thing.
