Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. We’ve heard that hard work can beat talent – but how often do we forget this? We open our phones, scroll our social media, and can’t help but see someone else posting something great. They’ve reached a fitness goal, they’ve started a new business, or they’re on yet another vacation with their “perfect” relationship partner. All the while, we look around and realize we aren’t even close…
