    I read Outliers. And yes, talent is a result of people affording the luxury to practice something for thousands of hours without life getting in the way.
    Read the book "outliers." Often times, talent plays a smaller role in success than society thinks (example: your date of birth can give you a slight edge in development compared to classmates/teammates as a child, thus encouraging coaches/teachers to further develop these individuals). Sometimes, like in basketball, talent is obviously paramount (it's just genetic luck, really). But in most areas of life (most careers, hobbies, social situations) talent is vastly overrated. So many people discount themselves or others based on their supposed "natural abilities." The truth is, most "talent" is built through uncontrollable circumstance (where you're born, social status, parental child raising methods, etc) and hard work. Talent is overrated for sure.
    very underrated in todays society
    Being beautiful and talking a big game, seem to matter more than pure talent and hard work.
