For many years I was using words like “talented” or “gifted” to describe people who exceled in their field, who were above the avarage.
They were special, untouchable, made from a different clay.
I could watch them but I would never sit with them at the table, I could never reach their level as I wasn’t lucky enough to get a good genes.
In my eyes I wasn’t talended.
Only many years later I’ve realized that it was a false thinking. Behind every successful story there were years of hard work and dedication.
And suddenly it all made sense.
John, a natural fast runner? Well might be, but he also runs all the time.
Paul, talended speaker? Possibly but he was also a member of a public speaking club for last 10 years.
Jenny, a gifted piano player? Yes plus she had lessons since she was 5.
Can you see the pattern?
As one of the best football players in the world, Pele, said:
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
You can do and be whoever you want to be. Start being awesome now!
