Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
~ Stephen King
I have always said that each of us has a special ‘God-given’ talent!! And, of course, we know that Stephen King is writing intriguing fiction.
But it is what we do with that talent that counts! If we hide our talent or don’t express it, we are, in my opinion, being selfish!
According to Stephen, with hard work, we can transform that talent into success. Actually, some of us are talented enough that the work does not seem as hard.
After all, if we love what we do, it is not really work at all, is it?!
Stephen’s quote reminds me of another famous quote:
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Very interesting that a man, who has made a good living from writing best selling novels, saying that words diminish the most important things.
But, at the same time, I think a smile, a kiss, a tear are all important forms of communications that cannot be put into words.
What can you do today that words could not describe? Remember that love cannot be put into words either ….
