I think this is more of an obscure topic. Yes talent exists, but it is almost always in raw form. The key to talent in my opinion is cultivation!! Talented basketball players like kyrie irving spent over 10,000 hours to master his dribbling skills and he still spends more practicing. It's never ending. I believe people have a confused notion that they are either good at something or aren't. This I feel is wrong. In my opinion, talent is closer to passion or likeness of something followed by persistent ant consistent Hardwork. when you discover something that inspires you to want to do more, or that drives your passion, that would become your talent after putting in the obsessed work required to learn everything about it, then you become talented.
There are few prodigy's who randomly know how to play a piano or a violin in perfect form, these people usually also have a slightly different kind of brain mechanism. but talent as we know it is nothing but Passion for something and consistent work towards that thing.
Hope this is somehow meaningful :)
That's really true. People are talented in some fields however hardly ever they can discover this talent.
I learned to play the piano during my childhood and many people said that I am a talented man but I didn't do anything special. I just did my homework and learned new skills. The same like other children in this matter. Nevertheless, I was loved in sports activity and in this area would my talent be discovered. In music, I didn't achieve any success. I suppose I would achieve more in sport than in music, however, I didn't a possibility of teaching by coach or developing my skills. I just stayed active for myself.
