    In my life, it does. I follow resistive paths and succeed. My talents are just there, I don't use them productively. My talents are only used for relaxation and enjoyment. I don't know if I'd want to use them to make money... Seems like mixing them may cloud the talent. In some cases, it may not be that way. (Musical areas?) Then again, we see a lot of pop nowadays that doesn't reflect much talent, but they are the ones making all the money. I guess it depends on exactly what the end goal is.

    While in anything really worth doing both hardwork and talent are required in some measure I'd say that talent is over rated by the public at large and hardwork is under rated by the same. The fact is what often of passes as "talent" is just the result of hard work. I'm not saying talent doesn't exist, it does, but mainly as limiter - most of us never really brush up against the limits of our talents and it takes a long time to reach them. It took years of racing before I reached the end of what hard work could do for me and I experianced something similar with mathematics.
    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups

    Those with talent have a tendency toward complacency. That\'s your angle, if you are a work hard without the talent.

    So true. I'm living proof of that.
