    I would strike off

    1
    2
    5
    8

    9 is equivocal.

    10 has nothing to do with photography. I smile all the time. But my photography do not improve.

    I would add

    Coffee- strong coffee!
    A good dose of arrogance
    Individualism
    Bulldog bite
    Never give up

    no.5 ? i always believed photography, like art, is a creative process.

    as for smiling, it does help the photographer gain rapport with his/her subjects, e.g. in travel portraits. and get better photos in the process.

    Individualism and never give up i fully agree with.

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    This i absolutely agree with but Humility is quite important as well although a touch of arrogance does help... but only a wee touch.
