Talent is a myth. Talent is an excuse. Talent is a curse.
To my opinion, reaching success is like getting a six on a dice. A very few people will throw one dice once and succeed. When most of the people will throw a few dices and fail. Then quit, believing they do not have any talent.
What a fate. Talent is a lie.
Most of the successful people throw as many dice as they can, until they finally succeed.
Their experience, awareness and revenues give them now the opportunity to throw more dice per play.
In comparison unsuccessfull people have the feeling to have no talent.
But I have to admit that it is true: we are not born equal. Some people have the chance to throw 3 dices on the very first time when people will need to throw 3 times a dice to get as many chance.
Success ask work, perseverance and a pinch of luck.
Luckily, I don’t have any talent. Instead I’m curious, patient and obstinate.
We should have no resilience for failure. Going back to our feet and throw the dice one more time.
And over again.
This is what I’m repeating to myself when I don’t reach the goals I have settle to myself.
Maybe I should sometimes be satisfied with a 4 or a 5. But for now, I can’t.
And you, what do you do to motivate yourself when you did not succeed? Let’s start a conversation in the comments below ;-).
