People often believe that people who are successful are successful because they have natural talent. However, Orwell, in the novel Outliers, makes it clear that natural talent has little to do with success. The successful are a product of lucky circumstances, extra practice, age, and family status. Many coincidental circumstances lead to other opportunities that allow someone to excel more than another. From there they continually excel and are considered successful over those that did not have the same opportunities.
In this paper, I will discuss how the following events in this tragic play can help us to analyze the character growth of King Lear. It is important for us to recognize the flaws and weaknesses of Lear’s personality to see how his actions and decisions led to his ruin. However, although he faces the misfortune of losing the things that he cherished the most, he also has the opportunity of transitioning into his being and experiencing the new-found attentiveness of love and morality. Whilst analyzing the progression of Lear’s complex character development, we must start from the beginning. King Lear is an arrogant and powerful individual who is very much aware of his authority.

Lewis wrote some of his novels in a way to not only educate the world that selflessness will always win but also the fact that selfishness will always lose. One of Lewis’s notable works -- “Till We Have Faces” -- clearly demonstrates how selfishness loses but selflessness wins. In “Till We Have Faces” by C.S. Lewis, Lewis portrays Orual as a villain as a result of her jealous actions which not only resulted in Psyche’s exile but also Psyche being forced to complete difficult tasks in order to regain her favor; however, Orual’s actions highlight the hidden message that Lewis is trying to convey - jealous/selfish love
Machiavelli’s advice is there for the people who hold power and exposes the truth in human nature. However, although Machiavelli opens up the honesty of humanity; he teaches that there are a lot of people who are not good, so one must also learn to not be good. The thing that is wrong with this is that evil does not combat with evil. Evil can not conquer evil, good conquers. Therefore, The Prince explores the reality of human nature as self-interested and wicked.
His theories and those who share the same thoughts are not often talked about, as society would rather live on believing in equal opportunity for everyone to obtain some form of success. While there are some who remain outliers to this theory, to Gladwell it makes much more since to think about success as being based on the situations surrounding someone rather than based on their ideals as an individual.

‘An honest person can always achieve their goal easily because we can get something in return from others,’ a respondent said.

We can also taste the sweetness of your hard work through the difficult method because of our efforts that we put in.

Bruno was Shmuels best resource, because even though he didn't have a lot of them, Bruno definitely helped. Some people believe that using your resources would not be the best thing you could do to survive, they might even think it doesn’t matter. Some people say that you are going to die eventually, so there is no use in making extra trouble for yourself. Another thing people might think is, no matter what you do you are still going to go through hard times.
