Talent and Passion

Passion • Painting

Question I get asked all of the time “Were You Born with Talent?”

And here’s my answer. I was born with passion.

Now I’ve learned that most successful artists have passion.

And not just the talents they’re famous for.

The Passions of Anthony Hopkins  and Tony Bennett

talent - passion

Last thing…

When I was a kid I wanted to be a writer and then in high school an actress.

Today…I write and star in videos, I say with a smile.

Oh yes …and I paint. I love to paint. No I wasn’t born with talent.

I was born with passion and the gift of perseverance.

Now in the comments below… tell us…

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?

Then come back and read everyone’s comments
