Do you believe success depends more on what you know than on whom you know? [closed]

0 votes

Hi,

So, I was in an interview session where I explained about how we were successful working with all the team members. The interviewer then asked me this question " Do you believe success depends more on what you know than on whom you know"? For me, I always prefer to share my success with all the team members I work. But I knew that my answer was not up to the mark to convince him. Can anyone suggest any proper answer to this?

Hey,

When you get this kind of questions, try to focus on some positive answers in a positive way like " Success will come to you once you know something and should know how to implement it. If you have knowledge regarding the subject you are working, I guess there is no need of some external dependency. Once you do not have any idea about the topic, then you may go to someone who know is master on that particular thing, but keep in mind he is not going to spoon feed you. So, do take up some help, start working on that and find your way to success.

To think that one can become a success without knowing anything or having any kind of ability might be bit naive.

And yet, if one was to think that knowing the right things or becoming really good at something is the answer, they are not going to be in a much better position.

This shows how important relationships are, and making sure that one reaches out to the right people and ends up in right places. Having the drive and the commitment will also allow one to keep going when nothing appears to be happening externally. As is having the belief that one does matters; even though it might not always appear that way.
