“Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well.”

~Josh Billings

It is extremely rare to find a successful person who got there only by talent or by inheritance.  Even when that is the case, if those are their only assets their success is usually fleeting.  No, the overwhelming majority of those with sustained success are there due to using what they do have exceptionally well.  Persistence, focus and passionate intensity will deliver success to those with no inheritance or merely rudimentary talents.  Imagine what it can do for you if you are fortunate to be born with great talent or wealth!
