We are told that talent creates its own opportunities. Yet it sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities but its own talents as well.
The journey to become the best version of yourself takes intense desire, unwavering commitment, and a willingness to fail. Opportunities will present themselves and other times you will create them.
Talent is given. Hard work and desire are skills you can work to improve upon. They ARE skills. Creating opportunities can be developed through effort, attitude, and growing from failures and mistakes.
Do what needs to be done each day, be done with it, and move on to the next day.
