In his book Outliers Malcolm Gladwell describes how no one becomes a genius overnight. You become a specialist once you have put in 10,000 hours. Susan Boyle is a fantastic illustration of this theory. She is single, 47 and has been singing for 35 years.
Are you doing what you love? Are you doing what you can do to prepare for what God has for you? Give your life to something you love stick with it even when your detractors jeer, stick with it see what no one else sees and you will one day be a genius overnight (10,000 hours later.)
