In this post, we are going to explain a quote by Gary Vaynerchuk which says: “Without hustle, talent will only carry you so far.”
Thoughts on this quote.
Talents are the bedrock to becoming successful in life; but without discovery, talent is a waste.
And I have never seen a talent being discovered from its hiding place.
And even when the talent came outside, it had to struggle for notification. And that struggle entails the hustle.
As a matter of fact, every talent comes with a hustle.
An upcoming artist who has a talent to sing or rap must first prove it by singing or rapping when the opportunity presents itself, in order to get people’s attention.
And that singing or rapping is the hustle indeed!
The hustle perse does not only stop at trying to make money to pursue your talent, but also using your talent in a way that will attract investors or sponsors to bring out the hustle in it.
So if you have the talent, don’t be like the foolish biblical servant who went and hid his own talent in the ground, while the other wise ones invested theirs and made profits.
And if you are a Christian, you know how the story ended.
And in case you don’t know the story. It ended when the master took the one talent from the man who buried it and added to the man who invested his talents and made ten more talents. (Mathew 25:14-30)
What’s our motivation for this quote?
Our motivation for today is to make use of our talent; or as the quoted writer puts it, to ‘hustle’.
Because without the hustle, your talent will only carry you so far.
Have a nice day!
