This post is dedicated to all students who burn the midnight oil and work hard all the time to achieve or to get admission in a good university. I am also a high school student from India and preparing for Olympiads which are going to take place this year.
What do I mean by the Title?
Let’s understand this by an example, imagine you are the topper of your class and you always get decent marks. There is another guy in your class who has potential, but he/she couldn’t get decent marks like you. You gradually stop working hard and consider yourself a god gifted child who has immense talent inside him/her, but when you stop working hard that guy does his/her best and by his hard work he becomes the new topper.
In the above given example you were a talented person, but as you stopped working hard the hardworking student overtakes you.
Therefore, “Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard.”
Difference Between TALENT and SKILL-
The difference between these terms is that talent is by birth or we can say inherited trait, but skill is acquired by us in our lifetime or we can say that it is a acquired trait.
We can learn and master a skill and make it equal to talent by hard work and determination.
Actually I think that a skill acquired by hard work is better than a by birth talent as if you earn a skill, so you know the amount of hard work and effort that you have done to acquire it, but if you are talented by birth you will not know the real value of hard work as a rich person doesn’t know the value of food and shelter.
I myself herd about this phrase through my online teacher Physics Wallah- Alakh Pandey on you tube. He is an excellent physics cum chemistry teacher and also an excellent motivator.
If anyone of you are preparing for any entrance exam or anything ,so I would like to say that—>
“PRACTICE LIKE YOU HAVEN’T WON, PERFORM LIKE YOU HAVEN’T LOST”
