Talent is Never Enough

Talent is Never Enough

 “Talent is never enough. With few exceptions the

best players are the hardest workers.”

Magic Johnson American Retired Professional Basketball



As I see it . . . . . . . .

Talent is never enough


You can see it in sports as well as in the business world. The most success people are not the ones with the most natural talent. The truly successful person are the ones who have worked the hardest at their trade to excel at it.


A hard workers make the most out of their talent . . . . and that’s the starting point to grow their talents to increasing higher levels.


The person with natural talents that does not put in the time and effect to grow their talent to higher levels will peaks early . . . . and won’t grow their talent to its maxim capacity. 


Take the talent that you were born with nurture it . . . . and work hard at getting better. The extra effect that you invest in yourself in getting will that time and effort. Your investment in yourself in getting better will return to with dividends elevating your level of talent . . . . and your results to new and higher levels. 


Talent is never enough . . . . . real success is achieved in the extra effort and hard work.

When people are talented, and love doing the thing they are talented at, they will spend the work and time to make a life doing that thing.

Good morning Lou.  I love this quote from Magic Johnson.  Hard work can accomplish a lot more than talent alone.

Hello Lou,  Everyone has their own talent but yes they need to work at it all the time to take it to the next level or it will slow down and not be as good as it once was.

Lou this is so true, just to underline your point in my High School class those of us who were in the to tier most failed, the ones in the second tier who worked to get the grades and worked hard became more successful in life... no surprise there... the top tier was too lazy:))Endre

Having talent certainly makes life easier, but it is not much good if we don't put our talents to good use.
