Is Talent Enough?
I hear people complain all the time about the music that is being made or musicians and artists will say how someone isn't talented and was just given their success. These kind of statements bring us to one question. Is talent enough? The answer is no. Talent doesn't guarantee you success. The only thing that guarantees success is hard work. Is seems that the music industry is full of critics and most of the time the people that are criticizing only have time to do so because they are not working on fully developing their own talent or career. Some times ego can play a part as well. Most people with talent are lead to believe that because they are talented they are entitled to special treatment or consideration. That is not at all true. Talent can give you a head start but it is your work ethic and dedication that will be the deciding factor. Take Michael Jackson as an example, he was definitely gifted with tons of talent but he only became the superstar we know as a result of his years of hard work. He never settled for anything less than greatness in any of his endeavors. It is this work ethic that made him a superstar. That's why you may see an artist that you think can't sing as well or have as much talent but that artist is more successful than other more talented people because of his/her work ethic. So don't fool yourself. Talent is not enough. Now let's get to work!
