3 Key Points:

  1. It might not always seem like it, but you have very real, very measurable talent. Making the most of that talent means finding something you’re incredibly passionate about, and becoming so good at it that the world can’t ignore you.
  2. When you approach a problem in the same manner as everyone else, you’re going to get the same result.
  3. Be genuine—duplicity never pays in the long-run.
