• 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Talent allows you to go further

    With hard work sure you can make a stable living and support a family. However the fact is that only those with significant talent will rise up and distinguish themselves from the crowd. (Or those with significant luck but that's not the question) I need 5 more words l o l

  • Talent beats out Hard Work

    Just think about it. Would you want a doctor who works hard or a doctor that is talented? Hard work is a form of natural talent. Someone can work very hard to be good at something but still won't beat a person who is naturally great at it. Just because someone works hard doesn't mean they will be as good as someone who is naturally talented.

  • Talent gives a person an edge.

    When you pick up something quickly, It's talent. When you study and do it with hard work, It's something that requires you to do it again and again to retain it. . Having talent will help to learn more things quickly, Where hard work requires time to learn the ropes. With talent, Hard work becomes easy and without talent hard work is just that. . . . Hard work.

  • Kevin durant is 7 foot and athletic

    Nobody i know is 7 foot and athletic. Yes hardwork is important but without being 7 foot and athletic keving probably wouldnt be that good.

  • Talent can Help you Support your dreams.

    In most of the cases, Talents were people's hobbies. Sometimes they will make them their career. Talents were things that they can work on, And achieve something. Also, Many people would want to achieve more based on their talents, And none would want to work on the things they don't like.

  • Work and talent

    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.

  • Talent Is What Derives Success

    Without talent an individual may never be as successful as a person with talent. Even if both of them end up working just as hard the person who has natural talent will always end up coming out on top. So, in conclusion talent gives a massive head start over hard workers.

  • Talent in the hands of the Right People

    While I agree with some of the yes arguments, they are completely irrelevant if you have a person that works hard and has talent. If someone with talent were to work just as hard as person without, the talented individual will come out on top because of head start that he has.

  • Both is important!! But talent is more important.

    Both are important, but if you are talented at something such as football or soccer you can use your extra time and energy to work hard at such things as math or being a public speaker. Everyone has something they are great at and you already use your extra energy for something else.

  • Stop lying to yourself with this "hard work beats talent" bullshit just to feel better.

    A hardworking swimmer who practices swimming every single day for years will never in a million years out swim a fish. Natural born raw fucking talent beats hard work 11 times out of 10. No amount of hard work will ever change that fact, no one is born with the capability to be the best at everything just by putting in "hard work".
