| The entrepreneural spirit, isn't it?

  That would be much more.  I relate it only to surprisability.

| And those people that have it---are they lucky to have it?

  I relate luck to opportunities that offer a choice of action.  If the
  situation offers no choice, it is may be the consequence of a past
  choice, or simply a natural event.  Is it luck that human beings evolved
  on this planet?  No.  Is it luck that you were born highly intelligent?
  No.  Is it luck that you were given an opportunity to attend a better
  school because your teachers discovered your potential?  Yes.

Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
