Opportunity. Timing. Upbringing. Effort. Meaningful work. Legacy.
These six elements are rather powerful.
Do the successful have to work the hardest or do they have the best luck?
In the award-winning book Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcom Gladwell examines scientific data and evidence from well-known success stories to answer the question of what makes a person successful. Through this stunning book, we will take an intellectual journey through the world of “outliers”–the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful and question ourselves about what makes high-achievers different?
