Yeah valid points.
If there's something you have a natural gift for, and you've had thousands of hours practice, THEN you take a course in it, you've got a huge advantage.
It's impossible to say what percentage was "Power," but it's really hard to argue that the other stuff didn't play a huge role.
So, is the lesson here that you should identify your strengths and your habitual thought and behaviour patterns, and find a course or profession that fits these well, then get a load of practice in even before you start, and after you start, use your power?
