Let me change to a different approach. This is what I often advice those who sought it: examine all your easy successes and all your hard earned failures. However, instead of looking at the external factors, look into your mindset, emotions, and feelings in each case and try to find the commonalities.
Just thinking off the top of my head, I'd say a common thread in "easy" successes would be loving (or really liking) what I was doing. When that wasn't the case, then a certainty that I was excellent at what I was doing and so it was inevitable I'd succeed.
