“My theory is successful people are often arseholes, particularly if they think their success is inevitable. Many people think they’re destined for great things, most fall by the wayside. The few that get somewhere often think their self-belief got them there, so they believe in self-belief. And self-belief can look a lot like arrogance.” [p. 296, 1]
