Talent vs commitment
June 24, 2016 3:52am CST
There are so many people out there who are very low on confidence. They just believe that they are mediocre and will not amount to anything. They believe that if they have achieved something it was by fluke. The people around them could contribute to these feelings of low confidence by their thoughtless words. Have you met someone like that before? I used to be there and think that of myself. I believed that I had no talent and I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth to get specialized training or help. I met a wonderful human being who made it clear to me that it is not about talent but it is about my commitment to make things happen. Talent could be wasted but not hard work. I never felt the same way again about myself. Today all I want to say is - its not about your talent but your commitment to make things work for you. Never give up.

@LadyDuck Absolutely.. we can always make something of ourselves if only we put the effort and have the commitment to pull ourselves through the hard work. I am glad you had friends to nudge you out of the lack of confidence and you had the determination to see yourself through the tough times.

@Daljinder When someone depends on what others have to say about them then they have low self worth.. You may want to spend time with yourself and know yourself. Happiness is a choice.. choose to be happy and show them who you are and what you can do. Best wishes to you.

I have seen people who dont even have to try cause theyre just so good at what they do.. thats talent and ive seen them rely on it too much and fail specially when they put down the people around them... when this person failed and miserably ruined everything because he was slacking off and got bored cause he can do it easily anyway someone who was working hes a$$ off saved them he completely turned everything around cause thats what he was working hard for, and instead of gloating or talking bad about the guy who messed it up.... he treated him nicely and helped him told him that he may have the talent... but he lacks the commitment to use it properly. So i definitly think that hard work can do anything!! Hard work pays off.

@sofssu yup.. they get c0cky and dont put much effort anymore, kinda sad. But thats when those people who work soo hard for it gets a chance so maybe its not that bad afterall lol... talent is the first thing you notice thats why they always have the better chance.. working hard for something takes time and commitment its not something you just see instantly thats why i think that people who work really hard dont oftenly get a chance to show what they can do.

It took me a long time to figure that out. I have to fight my lack of confidence on a daily bases. In spite of the naysayers, I've published three humorous mysteries. Few thought I could do it, but I took the chance. Stepping out of your comfort zone is both scary and exciting.
