It is generally believed that some people are born with certain talents, for instance for sport or music, and others are not. However, it is sometimes claimed that any child can be taught to become a good sports person or musician.

Discuss both these views and give your opinion.

Some people hold the view that children with natural-born talent can be absolutely successful while others opine that every kids can be taught to be proficient. From my perspective, I agree that being gifted is a great advantage but practicing and having strong will is more important.

It is undeniable that inborn talents are essential. A majority of legends all over the world are born talented. For example, we can mention Mozart - one of the greatest musicians, or football legend Lionel Messi and intelligent inventor Thomas Edison. However, natural talents are sometimes counter-productive. If, for instance, a person is gifted in something, he is likely to become indolent and arrogant, which may lead to misbehavior,disincentive and eventually failure.

On the other hand,education and training can be a great motivation of personal development. In other words, children need to keep practicing and putting their effort into what they do since this is of greater importance than inborn talent. Take an easy example, a child who is born talentless but has enormous determination, patience as well as hard work will definitely succeed. In addition, education and support from parents and teachers are proved to be effective. All children need help from their families to reinforce their faculties and accomplish their personalities. Moreover, peer competition is also useful, since this makes children exert themselves more to be the best.

In conclusion, a person is lucky to have some inborn gifts but it is acceptable to have none. Dilligence and concentration are always paid off.
