The above is from The Performance Cortex and is a good reminder to all of us that it's not just about what you're born with.

It's easy to chalk all greatness up to innate talent, and that mindset lets us off the hook. If it's just about what we are born with versus hard work, then we have all the excuses not to even try.

Sure, if you start something late in life, you may not have enough time to practice enough to be truly great, and developing certain skills while young may give you an advantage, but there is always time and room for improvement.

If there's something you want to be good at, put in the time to practice and work that skill. 

Remember, effort is a choice and it takes many forms. If you believe this and put it into practice, you can be successful!
