Henry Ford said it well:
"It's your thinking that decides whether you are going to succeed or fail."
What we think and the way we think matters because everything else - our decisions and our actions - follows from our thoughts.
We must have the right mindset for success, as Ethan mentions. Understanding exactly what that means and how to apply it in our daily lives is the practical challenge.
And as Mak says, hard work and dedication (a byproduct of our thinking) certain helps!
