Amit’s Answer

One definitely have to have certain Level of Intelligence and Logical thinking.

Logical thinking cannot be taught, in my experience. But one can compensate the intelligence upto a certain level, with "Hard Work".

Being diligent and sincere is definitely much needed..

And definitely, you should know, how to have fun :)

May be have some creative hobby like Music (Singing, Instrument), Painting, Public Speaking, Drama/Theater or any sports. I believe, these are very much required to learn better.

Amit recommends the following next steps:

Identify your Strengths and what you can develop more, SWOT is an good exercise to do.
