Whats more important for making it, hard work or talent? Posted on April 19, 2023 by Anonymous What’s more important for making it, hard work or talent?
In general, I find that hard work accounts for 60 to 70% of success. This is subjective, not scientific, and rough around the edges. Talent is such a vague concept. U would go with intelligence instead. An intelligent, hard working person is unstoppable. Unintelligent, hard working person will be formidable, sometimes as a net negative force. Unintelligent and lazy is completely useless and intelligent and lazy can be dangerous, as they can come up with stupid ideas and poison other people's minds. Example: idiots who came up with communism.
I think there are different types of intelligence and talent.
I seem to have talent for doing math and physics equations. I still have to study, but I have friends around me in uni who study much harder and put in more effort, yet don't do as well as me.
However, despite doing lots of weight lifting and looking ottermode, I get smashed by guys with beer bellies in basketball because they're just so much more coordinated than me and I struggle to make baskets. And it's not because they practice, even when I was young I was shit at sports. I feel like I'm piloting a mech and I need my full concentration, while they can be having a chill conversation and still out dribble me and hit long baskets.
There are also guys who seem to put on muscle easier. A lot of the hard gainer stuff is cope, but when I introduce friends into weightlifting, if I notice they have big wrists, they get much stronger much quicker.
Without hard work you cant make it.
Without talent you can make it given enough hard work.
Say what you want about Coolidge, but this is inarguably true.
>Say what you want about Coolidge
Uh he's probably among the top 3 most based Presidents ever (behind Polk and Jackson) and basically the last actually conservative president. Fiscally responsible, fucked the shit out of the Boston police union, shut up and got shit done.
You can make it with hard work alone. You can’t make it with talent alone. If you have both, you have GOAT potential, but if you have to pick one, hard work wins every time.
Tard work beats
Both ended up as jobbers.
Hardwork+talent+plot hax is the only way to win
This guy gets it
Talent if we're being honest. Even the ability to work hard ties back to personality traits which has been demonstrated to have a strong genetic basis. You might be able to change things a bit, but the underlying issue ties back to talent, and whether you're willing to fight tooth and nail for things some people get for free.
Example being that I can lift more than most of the zoomers I see at the gym, but they life MOG me with strong interpersonal relations, friendships and romantic interests, along with general life experience.
Another case is how I trained up my jab and the technique of my strikes and grappling, but the other guys at my martial arts gym could take me easily because I'm too submissive and meek to enact aggression in any meaningful way, even when it's explicitly socially acceptable.

If by "making it" you mean financial success, then neither. It's more or less just luck. If you work hard enough you can probably get to upper middle class from any financial strata though.
If you mean being happy and content in your life? Also neither. Find joy in things that aren't material. Get a hobby and talk to people you like. Find a way to be happy with as few things as possible.
>If by "making it" you mean financial success, then neither. It's more or less just luck
With that approach it sure will be pure luck if you make it financially.
In terms of athletic performance, maybe the hard work. If we talk about aesthetics and physical attractiveness, genetics is key
The more complicated and technical the sport, the more hard work matters and the less talent matters. Sprinting 100m is mostly talent for example, but being a good wrestler can be accomplished through hard work for many different bodytypes
Neither made it
You need good genes AND hard work
That's why Naruto surpassed everyone. He had both.
the show clearly shows you it's about talent
