Your reputation is built from not only what you do but also how you do it and the level of knowledge others have about what you’ve done.
Reputation = Accomplishments x Communication x Attitude
Your probability of success on any endeavor can be calculated by ranking the following elements 1-10 (1 = low, 10 = high) ..
% probability of success = ( (M + B) x E ) / 200
In other words if Motivation = 10, Belief = 10 and Effort = 10, probability of success = 100%
