Whether we believe in talent or not is irrelevant. Everyone, however, should believe in hard work. When we were born, we looked just like the next baby. We didn’t have any skills, any separating “talents”. Nothing. We learned everything from scratch. Yet, there is a time in our lives that we thank we can’t learn anymore. That we’re too old to “learn new tricks”. In that moment, remind ourselves that nothing has changed but our perceptions. It’s a self- imposed limit that goes directly against our greatest strength, and what makes us human. Adaptability. The difficult pill to swallow is that when we chalk it up to not having the “talent” it’s really an excuse. An excuse that we don’t want to put in the hard work. When we can see it from that angle, talent doesn’t matter. All that matters now is ho hard we’re willing to think, plan, strategize, and work.
