Talent vs Hard Work - Which is better?
Often debated and disagreed upon, the dispute is ongoing on whether talent
is the determining factor in achieving success in your chosen field.
The debate is used to fuel excuses such as 'I am not talented enough to succeed'
or 'I am so talented I do not have to do much' neither of which can be substantiated.
In success, most individuals seem to credit hard work as the key ingredient
even though it looks to us as a display of talent.
Hard workers however, many people will dispute, is no substitute for talent.
It is conceivable that the same results can be achieved through hard work can
be achieved by talent, given significantly more time, but that is difficult to prove.
Sadly, the reality is that there are many people that never achieve any
kind of success even though they possess talent that leaves us in awe.
Due to the fact that all of us know someone like this, it is unreasonable to suggest
that even extreme talent can be a guarantee of success.
Talent vs Hard Work - It is not that simple
Unfortunately, even a situation of rear talent occurring in someone with the passion
and drive to pursue it does not necessarily lead to success either.
Claiming that combination of hard work and talent guarantees success is oversimplifying
the difficulties and complexities of having a winning combination of traits.
Consistency is the key ingredient that allows hard work to produce results.
Short term hard work means very little but consistent hard work can produce results
that are simply too large to achieve without a significant amount of time.
Perseverance is what many talented quitters lacked, as discouragement along your journey
is all but guaranteed (almost as a right of passage) on the road to success.
Even someone with every other positive trait can fall victim to a deficit of self confidence
or determination due to a lack of support or conviction.
