I think we see in children, pretty early on, innate talent. My four year old seems to have the aptitude/interest for mechanical and musical things, but physical and athletic skills come much, much harder for him at 47 inches and 67 pounds. Yet, If he really wants to learn to ride a bike....
I forget the source of this advice, but it goes something like: find out what is more imortant to you than eating or sleeping, and make it your life work. (Someone out there must know who said that.) I think that puts talant, hard work, luck, etc., in perspective. I hope it helps my kid, who may choose a path that reflect his natural abilities, or heaven help us, decide to become a gymnast!
