The Talent Myth - Larry Gluck

This quote was added by tytoalba
People love the notion that talent is a mysterious gift from above and only a few lucky beneficiaries are blessed. Or that it's in the genes, or comes from some lucky roll of the twin dice, nature and nurture. The prerequisites for success at anything are always the same: an unwavering desire to do it, the right training, self-discipline, and the persistence to see it through. With these, you will eventually win at any activity.
