Most men dream of success, and by success I mean being rich and famous. Most of us would say being the best at a talent is the way to the top, but I’d have to disagree. Anyone can get on youtube and find some of the best talent the world has to offer, but some of these incredibly talented people are anything but rich and famous. Why is this?
It is not simply a matter of being good at your talent. You must also be alive at a time when there is demand for your talent, and you must be in the right environment. The best banjo player in the world isn’t going to be even half as successful as the world’s best rapper at this point in time. The same goes for the worlds best author and the worlds best movie director; we know which one is going to be more successful.
The legends are not the most talented people of a time, but rather those who were the best at what the world was demanding for that moment.
