Today’s Gem of Insight #17

Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that success requires more than natural talent and ability. It seems that sometimes we human beings are under the impression that being born with a natural talent and ability will automatically make us successful. And some of us choose to take that idea even further by developing the erroneous mindset that people with natural talent and ability are somehow superior to individuals who lack that natural talent and ability.

The truth of the matter, however, is that natural talent and ability will only take us so far, and if we lack the discipline and commitment to take action and put forth the effort need in order to obtain our goals, we will likely just be naturally talented people with fossilized ability. And I do not know about you, but being a living fossil does not appeal to me. #lovebythedrop
