Talent + Preparation

Written by Najma Juma | Posted on  18 Mar 2016.

Anybody can be great because everybody has a talent and has a choice to serve the world. The myth of talent has made some people prosper while others perished. Is talent a bad thing? Well, I doubt it. They say if you are young and talented it’s like you have wings. We young people, we are so talented, we have firm and well-built bodies, we are forming half of this nation’s population yet we are poor and unemployed. What happened to our talents?

Will smith, one of the most inspiring and successful actors in Hollywood said ‘I've always considered myself to be just average talent and what I have is a ridiculous insane obsessiveness for practice and preparation.’’

I therefore came to this understanding, that nothing is more powerful than preparations. They say fortune favors the brave. In order for us to be successful we must learn to practice every day for the course we are to pursue. Talent can only make a difference if we are prepared.
