Natural talent, no matter how great, can’t make up for a lack of basic knowledge and skills – but solid basics, combined with real desire and commitment, can make any rider a good rider.
– Anne Kursinski, with Miranda Lorraine, from Anne Kursinki’s book “Riding and Jumping Clinic”
The above statement is not only true in riding horses, but it can also be applied to anything in life, including the business world.
In order to succeed, basic knowledge is a must, along with a true desire and absolute commitment.
Natural talent is truly a plus, but not a requirement. If it is combined with basic knowledge, skills, a real desire and commitment, and even a passion, it is is the best formula for success.
