Jeff Bezos was once asked what makes someone successful. Jeff is uniquely qualified to answer this question, considering he founded ecommerce giant Amazon.com and is one of the wealthiest people on the planet. In this episode, Eva shares Jeff’s response which to paraphrase was that successful people have a combination of gifts (e.g. natural-born talent) and a strong work ethic (e.g. the grit to develop those talents). Jeff further explained that we can celebrate our gifts, but we should not be proud of them. Instead we should take pride in the choice we make to work hard and become the best versions of ourselves.

Eva could not agree more, and shares some examples of friends and a past guest who exemplify this combination of gifts + work ethic. Thank you to Jeff Bezos for making this eye-opening distinction, which Eva can now share with all the Big Dreamers!
