The Verdict is in………………….
Hard work is always a touchy subject for those who have put in the sweat equity hours, devoting years to create what they have. Then their are a few talented, gifted individuals who seems to gracefully float through life accomplishing a lot simply because of what they have. What is the reality for many? Do you consider yourself as a talent or a hard worker? Have you any idea what it takes to earn 6 figures as a stylist? If your talented will it get you there? If you are hard working with minimum talent, will it be enough to earn you great money?
My belief system has always been that hard work is the essence of advancing in growth. Smart work is the pinnacle part where you become strategic on how you grow. Talent, well talent is the potential you possess on exercising your gift to its greatest ability. Does this mean you have to work more or less if you are talented? Truth is, you have to work. No matter how much talent you possess, you have to put in hour upon hours of committed work. The key is having goals, a plan or a complete understanding of WHY, you are doing what you need to do. Without purpose, talent will get diluted down to a has-been situated.
I have interviewed talented stylist with absolutely no drive and interviewed individuals who’s work ethic was aligned with specific goals. Talent gets you to the door. Talent gets you noticed. Talent sets up opportunities. Talent creates new journeys. But without hard work and dedication, you can’t exceed beyond your capabilities. No matter where you are at in your life, I want you to stop and ask yourself, am I working hard enough to satisfy my goals and journey? Am I accountable for my actions, aspirations and purpose by dedicating the necessary time to achieve what I want?
In conclusion, my opinion still stands strong and hard. Hard work outweighs talent all day. You can develop yourself by becoming strictly focused on working hard on the accomplishments set forth in front of you. Sweat equity helps to build endurance, strength, focus and accountability.
