I'd like to quickly summarise the message from a short and truthful philosia video that Freddie recently posted. Hard work vs. Talent. An intriguing topic when analysed. Hard work is like nurturing and refining your abilities. Talent refers to your genetic potential, what you are naturally good at. This sounds to me like the classic nature vs nurture debate. Freddie concludes that one should discover what he or she is naturally talented at, and develop/nurture their ability to a high level. I simplified these teachings into three words. They go as follows: Nurture Your Nature.
If you haven't seen the video, the link is provided below if your interested. It's a good little philosia.
