People do have a natural apte and a natural ability to do certain things. For example, some people have natural rhythm and can hear beats in a song that I can’t

Ability is never natural, you may get a natural boost but its all about how much work you put in and how many opportunities you get to succeed

What about the ability to dream or think? Are they not natural?
(Tabitha (Uganda) at April 15, 2016 12:46 pm)
I think it is a mixture of both…I read a book about sporting ability (Bounce by Matthew Syed) and it presented a pretty powerful argument that if you are willing to put the hours in and practice, you can pretty much excel at any sport. Whether you become the best in the world is a different matter…

Environment coupled with genetic make up and self confidence and opportunity (light at the end of a dark tunnel) etc. A myriad of things affect ability. Personality and determination with a bit of luck are most important in my view.

Though everyone is born with some talents or natural skills, one needs good opportunies and environment to fully nuture the talents into real contribution for the society. It requires hard works and determination to develop that talent into impact and result. Besides, even though some people are not born with good talents, hard word and good opportunities can help people learn and attain the skill. Motivation is important, what people want to achieve, drive all their efforts and opportunites around them. Society needs to create a flexible and inclusive environment to help people achieve ambition even though they are not really skillful.

If you are born into a deprived or unfortunate situation, it can be hard to get out of it in spite of hard work or natural ability. Everyone has their own natural abilities and thing they can be good at, but require opportunities to do so. Hard work and determination are important but people need equal opportunities to have something to work towards.

This question makes me think of the theory of 10,000 hours (raised in Malcom Gladwell’s Outlier’s book) to gain expertise in whatever skill you have that time to invest in it. Even if it was this straightforward, would everyone have the same opportunity to participate in these, I think not.

Yes, I believe that talent in some part may be natural, but it needs training and the talent needs to go in the right direction! It’s normally facilities, infrastructure and wealth which can determine that!

It is! But that was also luck, as he was scouted! I bet there are thousands of children whose incredible talents cannot be seen because their parents didn’t have the money for their talent to be showcased, or for it to progress

Yes and no! Look at Ronaldinho, he came from the favelas in Brazil, but played football with whatever he could find, and was scouted on the streets! A great success story!

Many parents cannot afford to take their kids to classes so perhaps this commitment isn’t dependent on the kid but on the wealth on their parents.

I disagree, perhaps their parents saw that they enjoyed whatever they saw them doing a lot, and decided to take it seriously, by taking them to a class to learn properly! It’s their determination which depends on how good they got at whatever it is they went to

I think it’s the skill you have may be natural for a lot of people. For example, their parents saw them dancing in the house, and decided that they need to take dance lessons, as they saw that s/he was good at it, but then it’s the hard work that makes them professional, as many people are naturally good at dancing. It’s those who take it to the next level, and do something with it.

I think you are right Lindsey. people are good in certain thing but when they dont work had, they may not reap much from their talents. but even those who have no talent may work hard and be good in that particular talent.
