Talent Is Overrrated!

Last Update: April 19, 2017

According to John Rampton, a highly successful entrepreneur and online marketer as well as startup enthusiast talent is totally overrated. This is what he has to say:

Regardless if you are an entrepreneur, athlete, coach,artist,or politician we all face hurdles and setbacks at some point of our lives.There is a distinct separation between becoming a success or failure. It all boils down to resilience, confidence and not talent.

Mentally tough people are the ones that can tackle, endure and push through with plans and goals.

(1)They possess the 4 C's.

- Confidence --- where you believe in yourself and your abilities.

-Challenge --- where you embrace change or new opportunities in stead of resistance

-Control ---Where you have the the power to control and to shape your own destiny.

-Commitment --- Where you set goals and work towards achieving them.

(2) They're emotionally intelligent.

(3)They're not entitled.

(4) They're flexible.

(5)They learn from the past. But don't harp on it.

(6)They keep an even keel.

(7)They don't whine, complain or criticize.

(8)They have sense of urgency.

(9)They're consistent.

(10)They're grateful and appreciative.

Just a few points to ponder on and to my mind it says a lot.

Have yourselves a lovely and productive day and most of all enjoy what you are doing.


Take care.

Johan.
