Persistence Trumps Talent
Talent alone won't get the job done and for some people, work will out do talent. But if you never try you'll never know! As college students, you are going to have to be persistent to gain the talent you will need to succeed at your career goals. Great musicians, artists, and authors may be born, but they won't get anywhere if they do not practice a lot.
Is there a time in your life when you succeeded because of your persistence, rather than your talent? Explain.
