How to Become A Super Success. ♫

It is not even pure game theory. ‘Yet, it is quite realistic. Here is a story a friend told me:

This is a lecture. A professor plays games with his students in the lecture hall.

Game No 1:
The professor asks his students to toss a coin. If they toss a head, they can stay; if they toss a number, they are out. The game will continue until one (or none) is left. If one survives, he/she is the winner. The winner takes it all!

Game No 2: 

The professor takes his coin. The students in the lecture hall have no coins. They have to decide if it will be head or number before he tosses. Then the professor throws the coin. Those students that failed to expect the right side are out. The game will continue until all are out or exactly one student is left. The winner takes it all!

Game No 3:
The professor has a real coin. So do the students in the lecture hall. Both the professor and the students toss their coins. Those of the students that got the same result as the professor are permitted to continue. The others are out. The game will continue until all are out or exactly one student is left. The winner takes it all!

Game No 4:
The game is without a coin. The students in the lecture hall have pieces of paper. Secretly, they have to write down head or number. The majority will win. So when the majority of students had decided on head, all those who wrote down number will be out. And vice versa. If there is an equal number, the game is repeated. The game will continue until all are out or exactly one student is left. The winner takes it all!

No matter how the rules are or how complicated the game is, basically, it is always the same. As in real life.
There might be many good things and many criteria to be met if you want to be a success, but eventually it will be luck that plays the important role. You need it in order to become great. As in real life.
