Hard Work Almost Always Beats Talent
How we get to the next level is a reflection of our work ethic and hustle, but we don't always have to be the most talented to get where we want to go. "Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard" is another one of my favorite quotes to use. Too many times I've seen talented people that don't attain to the level of success they should, because they have lacked the work ethic to get there. Though, we see time and time again, the success stories of people with grit that just worked, and they landed on top.
So remember, you don't always have to be the most talented to succeed, just the hardest working. If you are fortunate to possess both, then change the environment around you.
