Talent? What is talent without aspiration? Without dedication? Raw talent is nothing on its own, an empty promise, a treasure filled with naught but air, buried far beneath the earth, away from the warm, gentle touch of the sun. Cold as a ghost, it lies there like a faded memory, waiting to be discovered and filled to the brim with countless treasures. But there will be no treasures until one willing to take matters into his own hands-someone who doesn't mind the hard work that will leave his hands blistered and caked in dirt, yet filled with the sparkling rewards of a job well done-finds the waiting opportunity buried under years of failed attempts and unreached goals.
