  • Hard work has a lot to do with it, but everyone at the prodigy level top 1% have their genes to thank for it.

    • But what about boybands who have mega success who can't really sing who would be in the top 1%? Would that include a mixture of factors determining their success?

    • Well for that its also luck.

      Having good genetics to be attractive and marketsble to young girls.

      And presumably they had a big break where they met the right person at the right time so that they could be discovered

      So its mostly luck and marketing

    • @Bandit74 Yes that's a good point. I just don't know if there is a difference between consequences of actions and luck.
