Ingredients for developing the chess mind.
These are the two most ingredients. Passion and curiosity. And then it must be tampered by courage and discipline. If you lose any of these then your journey will come to an early stop.
If you lose your passion because no matter how hard you work there is always someone taking your place via the back door then you will eventually give up and stop.
If you lose your curiosity and stop asking questions because they attack you when you try out new ideas then your journey will eventually stop too.
If you lose your courage then you will never develop the discipline to train. Because real training requires courage. To look at the things you are scared of and then to do the training to overcome it.
Like the ingredients to bake a cake. If you are missing the necessary ingredients the cake will collapse in the oven.
