Talent vs Hard Work

Hey Dreamers! I hope you’re having a wonderful day.

Today, I wanted to talk about something that I’ve been thinking about for a while. I’ve always heard people saying things like, “He/she is so talented!”, or “I wish I was as talented as her/him.” But, when someone says this, do they realize what they’re saying? The dictionary definition of talent is: natural aptitude or skill. Talent is when you’re naturally good at something. Talent gets you to certain point. But if you want to get beyond that point, it takes something more. It takes practice and hard work. Without practice and hard work, talent means nothing.

All of the greatest musicians, writers, engineers, artists, had to work hard to be successful. Sure, they might’ve been talented, but that’s not what got them where they wanted to be. They weren’t experts the moment they picked up the guitar or the moment they painted their first brush stroke. It took them more than a thousand tries to become as good as they are today.

Whenever you see someone’s work and say that you’ll never be as talented as them, keep in mind all the hard work and long hours they would’ve put into it. Don’t ever brush of hard work by saying that it’s talent. Don’t ever use the excuse that you’re not talented. You can do anything, as long as you’re willing to work hard for it.

Thank you for reading, that little rant. I hope you enjoyed it. ❤

Hey Dreamers! Before I start this post, I just wanted to say that I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting regularly, but things were really busy for me. So, a month ago, I saw that I had a 100 followers! I decided to do a Q&A and a giveaway, so here it is:

The Q&A

Em’s Questions

I have too many, but I guess I’ll pick one. “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” -Walt Disney

Why would you make me pick?! Why would you do that to me?! Since I couldn’t pick three books, I picked three series ;-).

Shrika’s Question

What is your name, Arunima?

I don’t know, why don’t you tell me?

Starling’s Questions

Dogs or Cats?

Like I said above, cats. Cats all the way.

White Chocolate or Dark Chocolate?

I . . . don’t know? I think, Neither, I personally prefer milk chocolate, but if I had to pick, I’d pick white chocolate.

Enni’s Questions

How did you come up with your blog name?

Honestly, I don’t really know. I thought of the name before I created the blog. While I was still posting on my earlier blog, I thought it would be a great idea for a blog name, so I created a new blog with the new name.

Do you have any siblings?

No, I don’t, I’m an only child.

What’s your favorite thing about the world?

My favorite thing about the world, would definitely the people. They make the world what it is and everyone is different.

What’s your least favorite thing?

The violence and prejudice. I hate how unfair the world can be and how violent it is. We don’t need violence show people how we feel . And we should never treat people differently, everyone deserves to have rights and to be treated fairly.

Is Arunima your real name or your pen name? What does it mean?
Arunima is my real name, I couldn’t have come up with that name myself. Arunima means red rays of the morning sun.

That is the end of the Q&A, thank you to everyone who asked me question. And now, I will be announcing the giveaway winners. Thank you to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it. And now, it’s time to announce the winners! The winners are . . .
