 Success: Luck or hard work? – An insight into how we achieve success

SUCCESS: Luck or Hard Work?

Some people say that anyone can change the course of their circumstances, write their own destiny and be successful. Others believe that our upbringing and the circumstances in which we were born determine the level of success we get in life. What of the two statements is true? Are privileged people more likely to be successful than those that are born in poverty, dysfunctional families or go through hardship?

Some authors like Malcolm Gladwell argue that success can be also the result of number of specific circumstances and not just an act of just bravery or determination. Other studies argue that white, highly-educated males are more likely to be successful entrepreneurs.
