“Hard-work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.” – Kevin Durant
When Kevin Durant said this in a movie some years ago, I felt it. Then I remember Dr Myles Munroe said the richest place in the world is the graveyard. Graveyards are filled with a wealth of untapped potential, filled with raw talents that were not worked on or even discovered. So I see me as my only competition and work on myself daily. I find a way to work on the talents/gifts I’ve discovered daily, weekly or monthly. It gets tiring at times and I retreat, but then the message imbibed in these two sayings gets me back on track.
I must not contribute to the wealth of the graveyard that my dead body will reside in.
