The talent excuse
You can learn to be proficient and go beyond coloring. Anyone can. And when you have learned to be proficient, people will suddenly call you talented too.
People use talent as an excuse for why they can’t do something.
Actually, people use talent as an excuse for why they DON’T do something. It is that word we all seem to let stop us like a brick door. For some crazy reason we let this flimsy word stop us from accomplishing something we really want to do, because with think talent means magic. Something that only the special people get.
Sorry not sorry for bursting your bubble here but it aint all that. Stop using that word. Start using the word experience. Instead of saying "Oh she is soooo talented" flip it and say "Oh she is sooo experienced". You are saying the exact same thing. You see it differently now right.... Yeah but it is the truth. It doesn't matter where you are starting from it is what you keep doing that will get you past that brick wall.
