We all have special talents… for some of us we’re naturally good at socializing. For others we love numbers, Excel and anything analytical. Some people are naturally great dancers. I am sure of one thing… I am not a “good” dancer. Let me rephrase that – I have two left feet.
Sometimes I really wish I was a better dancer.
However, it takes more than just natural talent to excel at anything in life. It usually takes a lot of hard work and some natural ability to become “one of the best.” Halo video gamers work hard to achieve their rankings. Magicians work hard to make difficult slights look easy. Chick-fil-A works hard to make serving others look easy.
Has anyone ever become the best without working hard at it?
