Talent, is it grown?

I’ve just picked up a new book ‘The Talent Code’ by Daniel Coyle, which looks into whether talent is born or can it really be grown?

I’ll review it when finished. The text intrigued me as a report into how much of a gift is ‘given’ at the start of life as opposed to the individual working hard and grafting it into an art-form through persistence.

It’s certainly posing a great question and a good study. I’m a strong believer in the nurturing of skill through consistently looking at adaptions of a challenge presented to you as an individual or a group.

Any thoughts?

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
