"Talents & Learned Ability"

It is generally, believed that some people are born with certain talents, for instance for sport or music, and others are not. However, it is sometimes claimed that any child can be taught to become a good sports person or musician.

What is your opinion?

In this modern society, people that have certain talents have become more successful in life. Some people might argue that children can be taught to become good sports people or musicians. This essay will discuss both views on this matter.

To begin with, people who are born with talents, are extremely intelligent and they can do what they want more easily than others. Moreover, they can reach a higher level than another people. For example, if the children have a painting talent, they can draw plenty of pictures extremely well, although they do no training while most people must practice for a long time.

In contrast, while not highly talented, most have some form of talent, and they can be taught or trained to be competent. People who learn to paint while they are a child, or study instruments when they are adults for a long time, will be successful. For instance, if I learn the piano for long a time; 2 or 3 years, I can become a professional instrumentalist.

Taking everything into consideration, I strongly believe that people who have the talents, but do not train or work hard, can be very successful. On the other hand, if people do not have the talents, but they work hard with significant practice, they will finally be a success at the same level as people who are born with talents. It is important to remember that all of these things depend on the individual's personality.
