Was I born with natural talents?

The old nature vs. nurture debate continues to rage. Some popular books say you were born a blank slate, that you can accomplish anything you want, you just have to put in the hours learning, that excellence does not spring from natural gifts (as well as lots of practice and good luck.) If that was true, we could search high and low and never find examples of innate gifts.

Perhaps a better question is: will you struggle with work that isn’t a  fit or discover your best talents and put them to work?
