You got to be:

- insanely committed to hustle and win

- mostly impatient

- relentlessly resourceful

- initiative

- comfortable in ambiguous situations and new territory where there’s likely no one to ask for help

- passionate

- grounded in radical honesty

- emotionally intelligent such that you can escape negativity and not get bogged down in downward spirals, but look for positive, virtuous spirals up

Lack any of these: failure likelihood goes way up.
