Which are more important for success: the natural ability you are born with or hard work? Explain your opinion, using specific reasons and examples.

Some people are lucky to be born with natural ability, but sometimes they do not care in order to maintain this ability. Other people have to work hard in order to reach their goals in life. From my point of view, keeping your hard work is very important in order to be successful, and I can name some reasons for this.

To begin with, the most important is to have a goal in life.After purposing the goal it is good to try to find the best solution in order to achieve that goal. Achieving a goal is not an easy process; sometimes we have to make a lot of sacrifices . For example, from I was a little girl my dream was to become a medical doctor. I worked hard to be accepted to Medical University, and also I continued working hard during university years. I still remember with pleasure about the day of my graduation. I felt that my hard work and my parents’s support were paid off.

In addition, being a gifted person is not enough. We can think about the athletes that are champions or those ones that break the world records. Behind of their success are a lot of hours of training and sacrifices. I remember that when I watched the Olympic Games from Vancouver 2010, the gold medalists from figure skating are trained together for ten years. They have started skating at a very young ages, so their childhood was affected.

Finally, the success that comes without work is not appreciated enough. Some actors start to play in movies when they are children. They become stars over-night, but they did not put any effort in becoming an actor. They become famous only because they are talented. If they do not know to feed and maintain this prestige they would become only some spoiled-children. Few years ago they were very famous; today we can read about them because of their bad behavior. On the other hand an actor that has achieved his fame being zealous keeps “his/her name” forever.

To summarize, being talented is a good privilege but the most important thing is keep your hard work in order to reach the success. Your achievement is better appreciated by you and by others.
