    factors in success

    Please correct the following paragraph.

    He knows that even if nobody believed him, he still believes himself. Luckily, his family are always there to support him to keep chasing his dreams when he was dejected. He could not let them down. Maybe it was the factors in Jeremy’s success, and it is a thing we can learn.

    Re: factors in success

    Do you mean "believed him," like they thought he was lying? Or "believed in him," like they had faith in his abilities?

    Re: factors in success

    I mean they had faith in his abilities. I revise the sentence as written.

    He knows that even if nobody believed in him, he still had faith in himself.
