I started recording this rant as a video for my instagram channel halfway up a snowy mountain during a rest break. But then I got carried away and went over the 1 minute Instagram limit, so I turned it into a podcast for ya’all instead.
Anyway, the theme of today’s rant is about how willingness to work is MUCH more important than talent or genetics, regardless of whether you’re talking about sports, business or music. Essentially I think that talent is overrated!
It’s amazing how people don’t want to acknowledge how much work went on behind the scenes before a major success.
Like Willie Nelson said, “Overnight success feels great after 10 years of playing behind chicken wire in honky tonks.”
