I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how often we see “overnight success”, and how false that notion can be. @lizzobeeating spent years working hard to get to where she is. so did @ladygaga. so has every band you’ve ever loved. talent is something, sure, and the odds of success can go up when you have an innate ability to do something cool.. but I’ve always heard that “hard work defeats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard”. these past few years I’ve been working harder than I think I ever have before, but it doesn’t feel like it, because, honestly, it’s what I love. still, work must be done, and if I relied on only what gifts I already have, I wouldn’t be where I am. 🤓 I post this as I listen to an audiobook, whilst doing ad testing, between reviewing my setlists.. the list goes on. talent is working hard today.
