A chosen few among us are blessed with talents that are inborn; they grow up not even realizing that they have something within them that others spend years trying to elicit. It can be aesthetic talent, sporting talent, academic or philosophical talent. Either way, raw talent is wondrous and inspiring. It does not however, lead to success on its own. Success comes to few, and sometimes not to those who are innately talented but to those who are dedicated and more determined to see their dreams through. If you have a talent that seems to pour out of your fingertips, here are some key factors in determining your success:
Honing Your Skill
Raw talent is nothing without proper guidance and honing. You can be a mathematical genius in your own right, but grow up in a wilderness without even a book to tell you how to use it, and you might as well have been a normal human being. The greatest mathematicians in the world became known successes because almost all of them were discovered at a young age and nurtured by great teachers who recognized their potential. Think about Aristotle and Plato, and all the others. Today, the internet can take the place of a human teacher, connecting young geniuses to all the resources they need. This is true of natural singers, actors, athletes and any others who have innate talent.
Representing Yourself to the Right People
This is especially true of the entertainment industry and aesthetic skill. Think that you’re a talented piano player in Brisbane. No matter how prodigious your skill and talent is, you will never become a success story until you are discovered by the wider world. You can either put yourself up on YouTube or pray that you’re the next Bieber or you can get a pr agency Melbourne to represent your interests and get you a footing in the industry.
Few people have the connections to get to the top by themselves; most of us need the network built by the best agency Brisbane to take us there. But once you have the right representation (provided you have the right reps), success will follow. Don’t forget to surround yourself with people who genuinely care about you and your talent.
Lady Luck and her Minions
The most honest stars will tell you that in addition to talent and guidance, there is also an element of luck involved. No matter how talented you are, or how well you’ve been represented by an agent, sometimes a little luck is needed for that big break that makes a career. Listen to the stories of some famous talents and you will hear how they seized an opportunity that presented itself when someone was absent without prior notice; or there was a sudden vacancy and they were asked to step up. Instances like these seem so out of the blue and random that luck seems to be quite a heavy deciding factor in determining success.
