Hard work is more important than talent
by Akeek for K

I agree that hard work is more important than talent. Hard work is more important than talent because if someone has a talent, that person will lose it because of proudness, and hard work makes talent.

Someone has a talent, and they feel like they are the best person at it, so instead of working hard, they just sit on the couch, and rest, just being useless. Until one day, he tries the talent again and finds out that he has lost it. If someone has a talent, they will be proud of it, and doesn't try to keep it up, and eventually loses his useless talent.

Hard work makes talent, for example, when I was small, I was really bad at origami, I even had to ask about how to fold a cup! I was really sad, so I used about five years trying to accomplish my dream. Until I was better than anything I could have ever thought I would be long ago. If you use hard work, it creates talent! So why even think about talent.

People on the opposing side will say, that talented people will have an easier time trying to succeed in life than those who are untalented. It is wrong, because talented people actually have a harder time trying to succeed in life than those who are untalented. As I said, people who are talented will lose the talent.

Hard work is more important than talent because, if someone has a talent, proudness will take it away, and hard work creates talent.
