Which is more important: hard work (yes) or talent (no)?

  • Hard work is more important

    Talent is useless unless you work to achive it. If you have talent it doesn't mean can sit on the couch all day and then expect to be great. Just because you have talent doesn't mean you can go on the court be the star of the team. Just like Kevin Durant says "Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard". And he has proved that himself!

  • You're looking at it wrong

    Though talent gives you a head start in life it honestly doesn't come to all. Some talents are useless, Such as Licking your elbow. Ok, you can do it YAAAAYY... I also agree with those who are saying that talent without hard work is wasted. I had a talent for drawing. Woo hoo. I could draw a crappy person instead of a stick figure. Now, I've worked hard and I can draw Pretty good if I do say so myself. Finally to the "resent study" poster, IQ is not an overarching test for intelligence. I tells how good You are at picking out patterns. It pattern recognition is talent, I am extremely confused.

  • Hard Work More Important Than Talent

    Yes, hard work is more important than talent as talent will only carry one so far. If one is not willing to put in the work to harvest and cultivate their talent, then the talent itself is essentially useless. Hard work and perserverance will beat out pure talent any day.

  • Talent is useless

    I do support because without the hard work the talent is useless!And with determination you can surely achieve your goals!There is an old saying that with your hands in your pockets you cannot climb the ladder of success!Hence I think that persistence with determination can always assure you suceess. And talent alone is useless

  • Talent is a dirty word

    Talent gives you a head start, but hard work makes you finish the race.

    Some "no" arguments (talent over hard work) say that profoundly gifted individuals have an edge. No doubt, but how many truly are "profoundly" gifted? Not many, at most. Which tool is more important, the one that everyone can use for every purpose, or the one some can use for some purposes?

    Hard work trumps talent. Yes, even if a talented person can trump a hard working person (or vice-versa, because there's always someone better). Hard work, is something everyone can possess; it can help everyone for just about anything. Talent? Only some possess it, even less use it properly.

    People who have both, are amazing. Why? Because not only were they naturally blessed, they've kept at it. Talent without hard work becomes meaningless. Hard work without talent stays hard work, it oftentimes makes the skill second nature - something talent rarely does.

    No doubt talent is still important, but the question isn't "which one is important and which one isn't?" It's which is MORE important. Hard work is, because whether you have talent or not, you can have hard work. Hard work is not a genetic miracle like talent seems to be. It's a way of life, a personality trait that can be ingrained into each and every one of us. That is why it is more important.

  • Talent can do nothing without preseverance

    Many people think that all you need to succeed at anything is talent. Talent is all very well and helpful to anyone wanting to do anything. However, talent alone, without the perseverance to ensure that helps one achieve is useless. This is as true with writing as it is with any other activity. A child can exhibit a great talent for ballet dancing but without good teachers to guide that raw talent and the child’s perseverance in practicing that her teachers teach her and honing her talent, she will never be a famous ballerina. It is the same with a writer, a child can show an exceptional talent for story telling, but if he ignores his teachers’ comments on how they could improve, and doesn't work on his stories, he will never be a great novelist.

  • What is Talent?

    I think talent is pretty much useless. I think this because yes you could have a lot of talent, but if you don't work hard where's that going to get you. Talent can take you far, but if you don't work hard at what you are naturally good at that is not going to get you far.

  • Talent is good for the short-term.

    Hard-working people have a passion for what they are doing. Talent can get someone to a high level; however, hard work takes people above and beyond This is because when someone is passionate, he or she is more motivated to take the work and create something new and amazing with it. Talented people who lack passion also lack motivation and will to create something that has never been seen before.

  • Talent is useless

    You cant do anything without hard work it is the crucial aspect needed and without it u cant even enhance ur talents even if u have one. Talent is nothing without hard work. There is a difference between a natural talent just there to help u along and an inborn talent which can be improved and cultivated by hard work.

  • Hardwork creates talent

    In some aspects of life, talent can't be made, however it in others, talent CAN be made through hard work. It may not be natural-born talent, but it is talent none the less. What is the point of having a talent if you are not willing to put in the work to grow and shape that talent or skill?

  • Talent is more Important

    Talented people will have an easier time trying to succeed in life than thy who are untalented. It will be easier for them to find a good jo0b, because if they are good at a certain activity, certain jobs will be easier for them. Also, they will have a higher chance to get good grades, hired, and succeed. Without people that are talented, there will be less jobs being done creatively and well. A talented man who works hard will have better chances in life than someone who just works hard.

  • Talent is more Important

    Anyone can just work all day, get paid, good grades, etc. However to really succeed you must find something you are good at. Talent will help some people to invent, build, sell their products, etc. Without natural talent out society would be nothing. It'd be bland, and human technology would take longer to advance. Therefore, we need the talent.

  • Hardwork is dumb

    Hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hih ih ih ih hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hih ihh hi hi hi hi

  • Science Proves This

    The talented people get farther in life, as long as they are working as hard as the hard-working people. While this may seem like a pro-hard work argument, talent gives people an edge over hard working people, and it is the reason why there is such a thing as natural talent and I honestly have no idea what I am talking about.

  • It helps u

    As the great fish once said," just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming." Swimming is hard work. I read a book once called," The Carpenter," and it read that people who have talent is at the beginning. Floop bloop soooooie fle di dje la salsa caliente.

  • IQ Level (intelligence quotient)

    You all know what IQ level is, right ?? You cannot get more IQ level by working hard. It is something which is inside you.It cannot be beaten by hard work. Example- A boy works hard and completes a a specific task in 6 days. Another boy (whose IQ level is high) completes the task in 3 days. That just like half the time!!!!

  • Talent for the win

    Talent gives an edge over people. You can be so much more successful with talent than with hard work. Also hard work can not create talent. If you have talent you can get better chances of being successful because your grades or shooting average(whatever you are good at) will make you a better person to be hired or signed.

  • Talent is more important

    A talented person can't sit around and be lazy and expect to be great, as one of the people for hard work has said. But talent without hardwork is just wasted time. Without the skills to succeed,you won't; no matter the hours dedicated. On the other hand a talented person can do something a hard working person can do at a fraction of the effort. Talent is needed to succeed.

  • Talent is necessary for success

    Research conducted by Professor Zach Hambri shows that hare dower only accounts for one third of difference in skill and the rest is due to other factors such as intelligence or innate ability. Hence, talent is required for success as no matter how hard one work, talent can only get one so far. However, with talent, one also needs hard work in order to soar further to achieve great success. However without talent and only hard work, no matter how much effort one puts in, another person with talent just needs to put in less than half the effort to be able to achieve the same or even better results.
