there is something about desire that out weighs talent.
there is something about determination that overrides intelligence.
there is something about having just the right amount of ambition that supersedes natural gifting.
the reason is, when life gets tough, when things do not go the way we expected, when everything we have leaned on or believed in has let us down, that is when talent and intelligence and our skill sets no longer matter.
sometimes all we have is our grit.
our desire to just get through it.
sometimes all we can think about is never giving up.
