What to do if you don’t have talent

  We often face a huge dilemma: I have to do this, but I really don’t have the talent to do it well, what should I do? Two words solve this problem-“constant”. Simply put, just persistence, you can live without talent, and even live well.
  To give an example of Zeng Guofan, he said: “Life can only be the first virtue.” The first virtue of life is that you can persist in doing one thing. He took his own writing brush calligraphy as an example. He tried very hard to think and try to write calligraphy, but as a result, nothing changed.
  ”Recently, I have been copying from the North to the North for a long time without interruption, and then I feel that the age is different from month to month.” I have been writing every day recently, and I have been persistent, and I will find that every month is different, and there is a little improvement every year. “It can be seen that there are no ages, no matter whether it is difficult or easy, but there is perseverance.” From this we can see that in fact, regardless of age, it is difficult to do things, as long as you have perseverance and perseverance. success. This is what Zeng Guofan told us, what to do if you have no talent for what you have to do.
  Why is writing a must for Zeng Guofan? Since the Tang Dynasty, people have judged whether a person can do it, whether he is worthy of being trusted, and whether he will be promoted further from the four points of “body, speech, book, and judgment”. Whether the emperor likes a person or not, “book” is also a very important factor, that is, whether a person can write good calligraphy with a brush.
  Zeng Guofan is strong in the other three aspects, but he has no talent in calligraphy, but his calligraphy is solid enough and not ugly. Without talent, it’s useless to think about it. With your ceiling placed there, you won’t be Wang Xizhi, and you won’t be Wang Xianzhi. But having no talent does not mean that there is no result. If you form a good habit, you will be effective if you stick to it.
  Zeng Guofan has no talent in calligraphy, but he has worked hard. He writes every day, writes a handy handwriting that is not ugly, entertains himself, indirectly entertains people, and can also entertain people. He writes a plaque to the temple and writes a couplet to his colleagues, which is sufficiently furnished, beautiful, and does not lose any share. There is a very interesting phenomenon. Zeng Guofan has no talent in calligraphy. He just writes reasonably well, but his calligraphy is now at a good price, and the characters are passed down from person to person. Those who buy the characters can draw spiritual power from the brush strokes and words written by Zeng Guofan himself. Is the beauty of calligraphy important? important. Is it extremely important? Not necessarily.
  In addition, being able to reach one’s ceiling is not easy. Many people think that they are not talented and simply are not enough. The lazy said, if there is a lion on the road, I will not go on the road. There are also people who haven’t reached their ceiling, so they can’t make it through. There are problems.
  Personally, the area where I have no talent or less talent is finance. Before I started my MBA at the age of 27, I studied science and engineering and medicine, and I didn’t know anything about finance. And I was sure how to balance the two accounts and study one account book thoroughly. It was not my talent. The method I use is a bit like Zeng Guofan practicing calligraphy, learning more of what I don’t understand, and more of what I don’t have talent for. The MBA is only two years, and I have studied 6 finance courses-financial accounting, cost accounting, tax law, financial statement analysis, corporate finance, and intermediate accounting, which accounted for nearly 40% of my MBA courses.
  The short-term effects of these MBA courses on me are all bad. I am tired, I can’t sleep well, I don’t eat too much, I don’t get good grades in the courses, and the teachers don’t like me, but the long-term advantage is that it complements my financial aspects. The lack of basic skills. The long-term advantage is that now others can’t fool me with financial statements. I can balance the accounts, understand the balance sheet, the income statement, the cash flow statement, and even understand the seven or eighty-eight taxes. There is no problem in being an independent director.
  What should I do if I don’t have talent in what I have to do? Facing difficulties, I will do it, and I will arrange more time to do it.
