Talent is Nothing

Talent is overrated.  In fact, it can be downright debilitating if you let it go to your head.  If you're more talented than someone, but they're more disciplined than you, they're going to beat you.  Why do you think the most successful athletes in the world put so much time into conditioning and strengthening?  It's simple.  Talent is never enough to win championships, but talent coupled with an unwavering commitment to excellence is.

Heisman Trophy winner and NFL standout, Hershel Walker, said it best.

"My God-given talent is my ability to stick with something longer than anyone else."

If you want to be your best, it's not about the talents that you have. It's about what you do with the talents you have. Below, I found this instagram post from a theatre teacher friend of mine that perfectly defines what it takes to be your best. If you embody these simple reminders in your daily life, your success will be unlimited.  

Talent is nothing without discipline and commitment, but if you build a disciplined life that is focused on protecting and growing your talent, your talent will take you to moon.
