What works for me? Talent or hardwork


Source
A talent they say is what you can do even without learning from anyone but hard work is working hard to earn.

I have met people who have earned from talent but not everyone has the privilege to earn through their talent. There are a lot of talented people who haven't earned with their talent and some will never do.

Hard work they say pays a lot but not all hard work pays because if that is true there shouldn't be poor people in the world. Some people are working hard but earning very low while some are making use of their talent and earning big, I believe all is attached to the opportunity opened to us.

I can say that both work for me because as for talent I have so many and my handwork is one of them because even before I choose to learn I can plait hair for someone neatly and the fact that am not lazy when it comes to working helped me a lot while I was learning work.

I remember my seniors at work asking me if I don't get tired after working the whole day during the festive period when I was learning and I replied to her that I can't pay money to learn and still be lazy with it.

The girl smiled and said thank God she is still very small. She wants to be very hardworking like me when she grows up, one thing about hard work is that if you do not do it, no one will query you but in the future, you might regret not working hard when you have the power to do it.


I remember when I was working in the factory there was a girl which whom we always go home together, this girl didn't always come to work every day so I asked her why and she said that her boyfriend is rich and she was just working for the sake of leaving the house.

That day I felt bad for her future because no one can predict tomorrow not to talk about the future, how can someone be like that? Being lazy because your partner has money is terrible, what if the table of life turns and he doesn't have it again, how will she cope with it?

I tried my best to talk sense into her but she won't listen since am a workaholic to her, one day she decided to leave our stressful work to enjoy her boyfriend's money. Two months after she left, they broke up I don't know what went wrong between them and she never told me as well because I have warned her not to depend on her boyfriend but she didn't listen to me.

She came back to the factory and this time she doesn't have a choice but to work even at that she was still lazy missing work anyhow she wants, some weeks later she told me that the guy broke up with her because of another girl so now she wants to be serious with her life and work hard to earn instead of waiting for someone that will disappoint her later in the future.

What am happy about was that she regained her senses before it was too late. Anyone that fails to work hard will end up regretting it, my mom always says that there is no food for a lazy man.

You can't be lazy and expect a bright future than people that work so hard even though you are a multitalented person.


What works for me

Well even though I have plenty of talent I still choose hard work because that talent won't take me anywhere if am lazy about it, it is only hard work that can boost talent.

I think you said it yourself: "I believe all is attached to the opportunity opened to us". 😀
Even if you work hard, really hard, there is no guarantee that you will succeed. And if you are lazy - there is no guarantee that you will lose. I know a variety of people according to these few criteria, all with different destinies. "Destiny" - perhaps this is the key word. 😊

Yes working hard doesn't guarantee your success but still we have to work hard we can't say if working hard will pay us

HARD WORK really helps in boosting your talent, some people just take advantage of the fact that their talent has started bringing income, they relax, instead of them to work hard more.

You said it all🙁. There are lot of people working hard but they are not rich and in life I think all that matters is have something doing,put in your best,work hard and leave the rest for God and have it in mind that talent only can’t take you anywhere .

With talent and handwork all we need is grace because there are so many people with the two things but still they are poor

Indeed my dear, you have said it all, it is better to make the both of them work hand in hand because they compliment each other especially to those who are gifted my dear...

Your friend didn't pay heed to your words and that cost and even when she realized it, she was still too lazy to work, when she gets completely broke she will understand better...

Well hardwork will take to you everywhere without talent but talent without hardwork will take you no where...

Thanks for the beautiful write up...

You are very smart and patient you even tried to correct that friend of yours but she won't listen that is the problem, They don't want to suffer they just want to enjoy that is the problem with our youths this days, You see now that the guy left her If only that she listened to you It would have been better and yes hardwork pays off but not for everybody some people needs talent to be successful.

No food for a lazy man. If you don´t work hard and trying to depend on someone, you might realize the big mistake but if you are lucky just like this girl, there might be another chance to turn a new leaf and start focusing on working hard to achieve the best.

Opportunity missed, they say it cannot be gotten back. I like the fact that you stayed focus on what you wanted to do. that is determination.

If am not determine am not sure if I can come out from the shop with something meaningful but because I don't look at what they are doing all that matters to me is my future

I could cope with everything and I survived

That point where you continued when others were tired shows that you had a target to meet, the was why you remained focus.
Imagine not putting in much work in what you already know, you wouldn't have been better

You're absolutely right. Talent won't take you anywhere if you don't work on it. Our creator has given us talents, we just have to discover them and make good use of them.
