This is the final exam performance of Loc Nguyen after finishing the speaking course at Phat Am Hay.
Script: When I was interviewing all these successful people, they kept telling me how hard they worked. And I remember standing there thinking, “Ah, jeez, another comment about work? Why don’t they tell me the real secret to their success?”
Trust me. I’ve interviewed over 500 successful people, not one of them said it came easy, even though they were doing what they loved. And we tend to underestimate work and overestimate talent. But in the end, work tops talent.
Many talented people don’t achieve as much success as they could, unfortunately, because they sit back on their talent and never learn to work hard. That’s what happened to Michael Jordan when he first started playing basketball. He had the talent, but he wasn’t putting in the work, and the coach actually cut him from the high school basketball team. Boy, that was a wake-up call. He says, “I was very disappointed. I started working on my game the day after I was cut.” And he soon became the hardest working player in basketball, who made fun of the other players who weren’t working hard. And that hard work is what made him the greatest basketball player of all time.
