Depends what you're aiming for. If success is winning the lottery, then put luck at the top and forget the rest. If it's to be a model you'd put beauty at the top with luck and confidence next. For a Nobel Prize you'd have academic achievement, hard-working and creative/talented.

Yes, sounds about right. You need to have discipline to do anything.

I'm creative but don't have much academic achievement.
After I quit uni focusing on something I didn't want to do anymore, I got tonnes better at what I wanted to do and I'm self taught.
I believe with most things creative, you don't need a piece of paper to tell you so.
I would be no one in my opinion if I didn't have creativity to back me up

I'd say confidence is a little too high up, although it's sadly true. To really get ahead in the modern world it's like you have to be this extroverted person, but many of the great successes in our history have been a result of people that maybe lacked confidence, and decided instead to focus their attention on creating works of art, devising influential theories/scientific laws etc. That is if introversion and lack of confidence are to be thought of as two sides of the same coin. Either way it's kind of a shame that confidence is considered a hallmark of a successful person whereas people that just can't put on that extroverted face are made to feel inferior.

The most important for me in my life Creativity!

I'd disagree, Creativity should be at the top. If only because I assume that Creativity itself needs both Hard-work and Confidence in the first place.
And whilst it's possible to be hard working, confident but not creative, I don't believe it's fact that you can be truly creative and not those two things.
might see you guys in September
