Question by strawberryfields: Do you think Adele’s success comes down to sheer talent and hard work? Or is there any luck involved?
I often visit a music school due to my interest in piano.
After Adele’s success I’ve seen parents telling their children ” if you have the talent and work hard at it you will also become the next Adele”
I know she’s talented and has worked hard, but surely there is some luck involved in these things too? Aren’t these parents being a little unrealistic?
Answer by Rachel
Of course, there’s an enormous amount of luck involved in Adele’s success — along with her hard work and talent. So yes — these parents are being unrealistic. Out of all the talented, hard working wanna-be singers and musicians out there, only a tiny fraction will ever achieve any degree of fame, and only a fraction of those will ever achieve the level of fame of someone like Adele.
