Talent Skill

Talent – Skill 

What is the difference between skill and talent?

Talent skill. You may say nothing, they are the same.


noun 1. a special natural ability or aptitude: a talent for drawing. 

Basically a talent is something that you are naturally good at, and that you like doing and find easy to do.


noun 1. the ability, coming from one’s knowledge, practice, aptitude, etc., to do something well: Painting was one of his many skills.

Basically a skill is something you learn, practice and develop. This can take a lot of time, dedication, and hard work to develop. But once you have mastered it, it then becomes easy. But the harder you work and the more focused you are at learning the skill the quicker you will master it.

It is not talent that makes people successful it is skill. And as I mentioned skill is acquired through hard word and dedication.

It also help to have a coach, teacher or mentor to help and guide you in developing your skill.

Here’s a video of Will Smith talking about talent, skill and success.

On-line marketing is a skill that you can learn develop and practice to become successful at.

I am still learning this skill. It is taking time and effort to learn and master this skill.
