Why the talented have such a hard time.
It’s hard to manage something one possesses naturally. When something comes naturally to anyone, they are less aware of its components. Awareness is a conscious act. Even those with good habits/talent may be unaware because they’re immersed in what they do and are not actively conscious of it. When the talented’s awareness is lower than it should be, the less talented tend to succeed more in all aspects of life because of the effort it takes to accomplish versus the effortlessness of the talented. While it is a gift to be talented, in general terms, it is more often a curse that must be managed, nurtured, and actualized in order to actualize the gift it was meant to exist as.
