Hard work is more important than talent
Tim Notke once said 'Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard'. Everybody has various talents from math to soccer to technology. This is because without hard work talent is meaningless and you can create talent with hard work.
Even though you may have a talent you will lose it if you won't work hard. Your natural gift will be wasted. If you do not practice what you have already learnt you will soon forget it. This is why many people say 'practice makes perfect'. Talent is something that is a natural gift but easy to lose.
You can easily create talent if you concentrate and work hard. It will become more like a second sense as you do it more. Say you are bad at math. You will soon become better and understand it more if you practice. Talent is easy to create if you work hard.
Many say that talent gives you an edge. It can make you in front of everyone so you will need to do less work. However, Talent is like the hare--stubborn. It rests after a while. On the other hand, Hard work climbs gradually to the finish line and in the end, Wins.
Overall, Talent may give you a head start in life, But talent always finishes the race. This is because without hard work talent is meaningless and you can create talent with hard work.
