What’s More Important? Talent vs Skill

There are those of you right now – your life is not where you want it to be. You’re messed up. Or you doing good, but you can’t find a way to get to great.

The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people that are trying to excel, who have dreams, that wanna do things.
Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft.

I’ve never really viewed myself as particularly talented, where I excel is ridiculous, sickening work ethic. You know.. while the other guys sleeping, I am working, while the other guys eating, I am working. There is no easy way around it. No matter how talented you are, your talent is going to fail you if you are not skilled. You know – if you don’t study, if you don’t work really hard and dedicate yourself to be better every single day. You will never be able to communicate with people, with your artistry the way that you want.

The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is – I am not afraid to die on a treadmill. You might have more talent than me… You might be smarter than me, but if we get on the treadmill together, there are two things – You are getting off first or I am gonna die.

There are those of you right now – your life is not where you want it to be. You’re messed up. Or you doing good, but you can’t find a way to get to great.

Just because you fail, doesn’t make you a failure.

One of the things you have to understand is that you are supposed to fail. You are supposed to fucking fail. Because failure is the stepping stone to success. It’s not just a clique.

I don’t care how good you are. I don’t care how talented you are. I don’t care how much you work on yourself. There are sometimes when things aren’t gonna go right. They just are not going to go right. There are times where anything that can happen will happen.

You must have faith.
You gotta believe in yourself.
You gotta believe in your abilities.
You gotta believe in your service, your company, your ideas, unquestionably!
You gotta have faith and that faith gives you patience.
It’s not gonna happen as quickly as you want it to happen.
It’s your dream, if you want it to happen, get your butt up and make it happen.
If you want to have it – RISE and GRIND.

I dare you not to go back to sleep, I dare you to get up and I dare you to chase your dream.

It’s possible you can win!

Whatever comes to you, don’t run from it. Don’t try and duck it like most people do… step toward it.
You wanna make your dream come true, you have to stay focused. Some people wanna to get even, than get ahead. Stay focus on where you want to go.

Where are you going with your life?
