One of my favorite quotes is as follows:
“Hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard.”
Often times, people believe that just because they have a talent or are talented in various areas, they can “sleep on the competition.” In other words, they may feel so entitled that they feel as if they don’t have to put in work like everyone else because the award or reward that they are expecting is automatically theirs.
If no one else has told you all, let me be the one to say that NOTHING is promised. If you really and truly want something, you have to work for it. You may be above and beyond all of the qualifications, but if you don’t put your best foot forward, how will anyone else see that?
Keep that in mind, and have a great week!
