There’s a great saying in military training that, “Hard work beats talent when talent is not working hard enough.” If that’s true, it’s no wonder that so many talented individuals are still struggling to get ahead and to make their business idea a success. Truth be told, there are millions of talented people still hoping and wishing for their dreams to come true. While there are some folks with basic skills and average ability who get up every day and hustle—learning the necessary skills, getting the necessary training, and putting in the necessary effort—to make positive things happen. And like it or not, they are often the ones who get what they want out of life, because they’ve already figured out that talent alone is not enough. They realized (sooner rather than later) that achieving their goals not only requires talent, but also skill, passion, dedication, drive, and perseverance.
