They say it takes 10 thousand hours to become a master of something, but if you love doing it, it really isn't that hard. While you sit here on FJ someone else is mastering what they love. While you sleep for 12 hours, someone else is mastering what they love. You can too, do what you love and don't stop doing it. I am 23 years old and I have already mastered masturbation, what's your excuse.

Id say talent is something one is born with.
Skill comes from practice, though talent does help.

**slythethiefcooper rolls 59** I shall practice rolling dubs

**secondfunction rolls 11** you'll roll dubs, it just takes a little time, but eventually you will get it. bob ross never wanted to stop painting even though in the early days he was fairly terrible so you should just keep trying to roll a nice pair of happy little dubs. you can do it freindo.

Lemme hit y'all over the head with a tale of knowledge.
As some of you might know (if you've been following my rants on this site) I'm an acting school graduate with both stage and film experience.

In my activities I've been partnered with everything between both extremes of talent and hardwork. Which is to say, I've had one guy, let's call him Vic, who had pretty much 100% talent but barely put in any work at all, one guy, called Mick, who had painfully 0 talent, but worked his ass off with a kind of single-minded fury that would put a wrecking ball to shame, and everything in-between.

As for me, I've always had a bit of talent, and was willing to pile on a bit of work on top, but would usually give up short of 100% because lazy. But this isn't about me.

Now, let me tell you, talent CANNOT be entirely substituted by work. That one guy, Mick, working his ass off 14 hours a day, could barely keep up with the immensely talented douche-bag who just went in looking like he just woke up, did his role off the cuff and raked in applause, and then left the theater to go back to sleep.

When Vic was forced by circumstance to put some actual work in, there was no stopping him. He won awards and broke hearts. And Mick, no matter how hard he worked and how well he performed, there was always "something missing". That's what the teachers, the critics, the directors, his stage-partners, everyone said. So much work, such great ethic, but no talent. It was like a perfectly cut diamond that didn't sparkle.

So my advice to you, instead of thinking "oh, I can be excellent at anything if I put enough work into it", try to find out what you're actually good at. What comes naturally to you. That's your talent. Now work on that piece of coal to turn it into a diamond. It's already sparking.

I absolutely love Bob Ross. Whenever I was having a rough time, I would skip school just so I could watch him paint.

"All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you."

See, I don't get how people believe this whole "natural talent" BS.

I mean, let's take learning an instrument for example. How the hell can one be "naturally talented" at that? Playing an instrument isn't a natural trait. No one came out of the womb playing a kick-ass guitar solo. The reason people like Jimi Hendrix and Keith Moon and Flea became masters at their instruments is because the PRACTICED LIKE A ************ EVERY DAY and put their heart, soul, and mind into it.

Sure, there are some things that require some form of genetic combinations (like height in basketball) but if you look at the story of Louis Zamperini, you'll notice that he had asthma and was like the ********* runner at first, until he pushed himself to his most extreme limits and became a ******* olympian. Louis CK, before becoming ridiculously rich/famous, was, at one point, struggling to pay his rent. But the dude put in hard work and look at where he went.

My point is, the only way to become successful is to never settle for less. But more importantly, do the things that you love doing. You will NEVER be good at something you dislike doing. But if you love something enough and you put in the practice, you will inevitably become good at it no matter how much you sucked in the beginning.

...or at least I hope that's how it works.
