The recipe for greatness involves three ingredients: talent, skill, and effort.
Talent is a special aptitude — something you’re naturally good at.
Skill is similar to talent, except it can be cultivated. While talent gives you an advantage, honing your skill takes you to the next level.
But talent and skill are a dime a dozen. There’s no shortage of people out there who are capable of doing amazing things. But capable is overrated.
The last ingredient, effort, is what sets you apart from everyone else.
