AOW – Does Talent Matter?

It’s proven that people who have natural gifts and talents in certain areas don’t have to put in as much effort to be successful in that area. They probably don’t get as much out of their triumphs, though. When you work hard for something and it pays off, you’re proud of yourself. If it’s too easy for you, you won’t get the same feeling of satisfaction. Although you may not be the best without natural talent, practice is more important than talent.

Just because you don’t have a God-given gift for something doesn’t mean you can’t be good at it. If you have a passion for something then you should pursue it, whether or not it comes easily to you. With focus, practice and perseverance, you can accomplish just about anything you set your mind to. Just remember, you can only get as much out of something as you put into it.

Having a special talent that you’re good at doesn’t mean you’re going to enjoy it. Don’t pour your life into something you don’t have any interest in. Instead, you should allow yourself some time to explore other activities. Once you find something you really enjoy, you can devote yourself to that. It’s important to like what you do. It’s hard to find happiness in something when you don’t want to do it.

Practice is more important than talent. Talent can limit you specifically to what you’re good at, but practice and perseverance can allow you to achieve anything you put your mind to.
