Talent is not enough. Talent plus hard work and commitment is the recipe needed to succeed.
Let’s break it down:
Talent – a natural ability, an unrefined yet remarkable quality or ability, with potential for improvement.
Hard work – the willingness to do what you need to do in order to get better or to be more productive, even if you don’t really want to do the work.
Commitment – a manifestation of your desire to succeed. Continuing to show up even when things are tough and the outlook seems bleak.
Put these three together and you greatly increase your odds of achieving your objective.
