Grit Versus Talent

What’s More Effective, Grit Or Talent?

Would you rather be talented or be tough? It’s an interesting question. The athletes and actors we see on TV seem to have a lot of talent, and many of them do. But having the resolve to continue under any circumstance can be much more valuable and can be applied to all areas of life. In other words, your athletic ability won’t do anything to help your scholastic efforts.

Talent Has Advantages, But Is Overrated:

1. Talent can make the journey easier. If you have talent for a particular area, such as music, you’ll have an easier time making progress. The journey is smoother and faster.

2. Talent is insufficient. Talent doesn’t eliminate the need for practice. Talent without practice is no more valuable than not having the talent in the first place. The athletes you see on TV have both talent and years of intense practice.

3. Talent isn’t a choice. You can’t choose to have a particular talent. You either have it or you don’t. Ideally, your interests and talents are in alignment.

4. Talent is only necessary at the highest levels. Can you be the world’s greatest pianist or golfer without talent? No. But you can make a good living playing the piano or playing golf without much talent provided you work hard enough and long enough.

There’s nothing wrong with being talented. The more talent, the better. But talent isn’t enough to ensure success. It only determines the extreme upper limits of your success. It also makes progress easier and faster.

Progress can also be achieved much faster with the use of deliberate discovery. The purpose of deliberate discovery is to help people determine what exactly they want from life and what steps will be needed to make these things happen.
