whether coming from a privileged family
or one that struggles to make ends meet everyday. Even though his family was
already somewhat wealthy, it was Ted himself who took every opportunity he

into a wealthy family or given 10,000 hours
to practice, but at some point everyone gets a chance to alter there lives with the smallest opportunity.

Gladwell identified that this is the recipe for success, and his point was proven in the story of Ted Turner. lead to his possible,and what success. made Cartoon Network about the man who no one really thinks cartoon in their life, but is still continuing on today. Everybody has watched a Gladwell's theories of becoming successful align nearly perfectly with Ted Turner. Thanks to his father, he was born into a wealthy household and achieved 10,000 hours of practice. Then, his dad's suicide was the opportunity that allowed Ted to apply his hours of learning and experience. No one has become successful all by themselves. It requires a combination of opportunities,determination, and persistence. in other words, you can't come from
nothing. Hockey has a cut off date in January. So anyone born in January, February, March and April has a better chance of getting on an elite team that practices more than kids born in December.
