I want help tracking down two discourses.

First discourse is where The Buddha is asked how long it takes to complete his training and he answers posing a counter question, then lists an amount of flawed qualities in a learner. It ends with him saying that if a disciple is of good quality the teaching can be reslized in 7 years... or in a day or so (this part similar to satipatthana sutta). I think this one is in the Anguttara Nikaya.

The second discourse i've heard claimed to list factors which lead to success in one's pursuit and the two;

  • Thinking about the thing one is developing
  • surrounding oneself with people who are into it

are included in that list iirc.

Thanks
