Why ”Hard Work will beat Talent when Talent Does not work Hard”

As everyone has dreams and goals they wish to accomplish, they also know that work needs to be done in order to achieve that goal. You can’t just dream and expect everything to go the way you want,  it doesn’t work that way at all.  Mainly in athletics, there are some athletes that are talented than others and stand out more. Then you have the athletes that are hard workers, but aren’t nearly as talented.  The talented athletes sometimes cruise by with their talent and everything is great.  The hard workers have to give more effort and do something spectacular to get noticed. I’m not knocking nobody because this only occurs 5-10% percent of the time, but when does it occur, it’s very troubling to see.  In Reality, 90% percent of the population on earth aren’t athletic and everybody does something to differentiate themselves in the crowd. In Basketball , there are tons of players who have talent but don’t work hard because they rely on their talent so much.  In Life, you gotta Grind for your dreams and goals because it’s not going to be handed to you. Nothing in life is free, if someone tells you otherwise, they’re flat-out lying.  I have my dream of Playing in The NBA, but i do the work to get there because i know it will happen, God got me all the way. In conclusion, Hard work will beat talent if talent doesn’t work hard and the opposite as well.

  1. This post shares a lot of great truths. You can be lucky enough to be talented at something but if you take that gift for granted, others will surely pass you. On the other hand, if your talent is not that great but your hard work and passion are there, you will eventually be successful also and even more so than talented people who don’t put in the same effort.

  2. “Dreams don’t work unless you do” is a quote i love to remember and live by. Which is so true! So i agree, you can’t just dream all these things and expect to just get handed everything. You have to work hard, and if you really want it, that’s usually not a problem. this was very inspirational! thanks for reading!

  3. What you said is really true. I’ve also constantly witnessed school mates who are really talented but lazy and wouldn’t do as well in school and the ones who are truly hard working yet really not talented would almost always do way better.

  4. I couldn’t agree more with this statement, it’s taken me two years to get my blog and youtube to the point where I can finally dos it as a full time career and it’s taken such hard work and commitment to get to where I am today…A lot of friends and other bloggers have admired the persistence as I think a lot of bloggers just give up and stop posting! Hard work always pays off!

  5. This is great, and very true! I think working hard will always get you where you need to be. Those who rely solely on their talents will one day come a cropper, and have nothing at all to fall back on!

  6. I don’t think you should separate talent and hard work. Maybe those who are talented make their hard work look easy. I find the most talented people are the most hardworking. But I really admire those who have to work harder due to not having a natural talent at something.

  7. You are right, nothing in life is free and you will have to work for it. Talent can be a big help but sometimes things can happen and you won’t be able to rely on it anymore, but hard work is always possible.

  8. Great post! I’ve known a few people in my life who had incredible talent, but quickly realized talent alone isn’t enough to carry you through. One has to have a strong work ethic backing them up if they’re going to put their talent to the best use!

  9. I absolutely believe this to be true! Talent might get you started but in the end work ethic and perserverence will win out when it comes to the best of the best — especially because anyone who’s made it that far probably has any relevant talent.

  10. I agree that you have to work hard to achieve something in life. It’s so sad if people waste their talent by not working to stay on top of their game. Also, keep up the hard work, and your dream will come true.

  11. Being a student athlete I can completely relate and understand your post and the truth it holds! I feel like up until college talent can get you pretty far but once you reach college and beyond everyone is talented so it is definitely going to be hard work and passion that sets someone apart.

  12. It’s so true, hard work with less talent will take you further than talent and laziness will. Lucky for those of us with not so much talent!

  13. In the end at the highest levels, I agree that hard work will beat out the talent, because you have some amount of talent to begin with. It’s for those who are not talented that hard work cannot overcome the lack of talent either.

  14. Of course the best combination is “work hard” AND talent. But of course, it’s not enough to have talent because the world is not waiting for you, you need give 100% to achieve your goals.

  15. This was an interesting read and I agree with you 100%. You can apply this to anything in life, work, family life, hobbies etc. In order to get great things in life or for things to go the way you want them, you have to put in the work. Sometimes it’s hard, but you have to push through and do it 🙂

  16. Stay true to your dreams and work your grind… Sure, some folks cruise through life and get by with minimal effort. Eventually, it does catch up somehow. My take is to focus on your game as that is what matters. All the best on your NBA dream and journey1 ❤

  17. I think hard work will always win out! Yes, you can have a natural talent for something but if you’re lazy then you’re unlikely to succeed if people don’t think you’ll work hard enough. Great post!

    1. I’m really glad that you’re taking the time to discuss this issue! i’m not an athlete so I can’t relate to that but I am an artist and I know the despite my talent I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere without all that hard work, 2am late nights getting work done to meet my deadlines, etc. I also believe that it is those who work hard that appreciate their talents more! Thanks for a great post!

  18. I’ve commented before but it said it didn’t work! so I’ve commented again with the same thing! so sorry if there is duplicate i just wanted to make sure it got posted! Not being an athlete I can’t relate to that but being an artist I know that despite my talent I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere, had no successes without hard work. I’m a strong believer that hard work makes your talent better and it is those who work hard who appreciate their talents more. 🙂

  19. This is so true. I am forever telling my kids off for being complacent. It doesn’t matter how good you are, if you don’t put the effort in you’ll go nowhere.

  20. This is true! It’s not wise to rely on your talent and never work to improve because you never know the levels you could get to if you just keep working a little bit harder on your self. Excellent point, thanks for sharing!

  21. I’ve always had this philosophy in my life – from sports to studying at school. I’ve never felt like I’m naturally the most gifted or talented person, but my strong will, determination, and hard work have allowed me to succeed at so many things. Great piece of writing, my friend.

  22. I can absolutely relate to this. I know many people who dream big but never get anything accomplished because they think they ‘deserve it’. What i tell them is that they only deserve it if they have done anything in their power and have actually WORKED for what they want.
