Does hard work beat talent when talent doesn’t work hard?

I’m athletic, but I don’t consider myself naturally blessed and a genetic freak.

I work hard. I wish I would’ve worked harder throughout my childhood.

Genetics matter. Raw talent matters. Some people are naturally blessed and gifted with innate ability.

Can we bridge the gap? We can.

Can we make up the deficit? We can.

Can we compensate for it through effort and hard work? We can.

How much? I don’t know.

I don’t have control over my genetics. I do have control over my work ethic.

I’m hungry. I’m motivated. I’m driven.

I’m going to outwork others. I’m going to work my butt off. I’m going to push myself beyond my limits. I’m going to work smarter. I will get the most out of myself.

The only thing we can control are the actions we take. Stay tuned.
