    Luck and intelligence are the only things I didn't pick. Although determination and single-mindedness aren't the same things, and I wouldn't pick single-mindedness necessarily.

    Luck favors the prepared. Some people are truly lucky, but often what appears as 'luck' is actually the fruit of a great deal of labor.

    Some degree of intelligence is necessary, however I don't think it's as important as many people believe.

    You also forgot "Vision". How can you be successful if you don't have a vision of what success is?

    I use the 3 "P" rule:
    Planning. Perseverance. And some other thing that begins with "P".

    All of the above and also the ability to apply what you learn and make adjustments as needed.

    Primarily passion imo. You have to be motivated and then you gotta work hard and persistently at whatever it is you want to do.

    Destroy your enemies and fill the power vacuum created by their absence.

    Choose one? Sry, read the instruction only after I selected 4 of them

    It was multiple choice.

    There is no key, because there is no lock.

    Or... just figure out what you like to do, what you're good at, and what can earn income, and reconcile the three. If you're not good at anything, then go live out in the woods.

    I voted "Determination and singlemindness" and "Boldness", and would have voted for "persistence" were it not tied to "hard work".



    I think the single most important thing is "knowing what you want" though
