People that are born with talent put themselves above others that have to work to achieve talent. The hard working people have to prove themselves to their coaches, teachers, teammate’s classmates, and family that they can keep up. This is when people learn the truth about life- Vince Lombardi said, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” Hard work is something people should strive for, because it always comes out on top. There are times where a talented person thinks they’ve already made it and don’t need to try, that’s when a hard worker is going to beat them out. The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame football coach, Vince Lombardi said, “Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. Sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.” When a hard worker wins, they look better because nobody expected them to beat out talent. Harriet Tubman kept going back and saving slaves again and again. Thomas Edison attempted 10,000 times before perfecting the light bulb. Albert Einstein received C’s and D’s as grades, but came to be a genius. Michael Jordan, considered the greatest NBA player, missed over 9,000 shots, more than an average player even takes. These people didn’t stop because they weren’t the best; they kept going because they knew they had the hard work to succeed. Whether it’s on the field, in the classroom, or at the office, hard work always wins in life.
