Success is perseverance

It seems like the will to persevere relies on confidence. I remember reading Derren Brown arguing that confidence is indistinguishable from pretending to be confident. And so, could success be even simpler: just pretend like you’ll figure it out eventually.

Is the secret to success as simple as just not giving up?

We all know intelligence is important, creativity is important… but how much do these types of natural talent control really what you can achieve in life?

In ~95% of cases, they don’t.
