Hard Work Matters

Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.

    But talent is sexy. The trick is to either make the hard work look easy, or deny having to do any at all.

    Talent is NOT cheap. Some have it and some don't.

    But it's true that having talent won't get you a thing without some effort to USE that talent.

    Those that are lacking in talent have work to do to get to the same level as the talented person. Then they have to do the work necessary to use what they've gained.

    So either way, there's work involved. It's just how much work that is the variable.

    With due respect to Mr. King, salt has historically been one of the most sought-after resources in human history (eg He's the "salt of the Earth").
    It depends on one's perspective, and situation.
