It is not the lack of ‘talent or technique’ that blocks growth, it is the lack of…‘temperament’.
Every domain has a peculiar set of qualities required to sustain excellence in it. However, there is an important part of that repertoire which people tend to ignore – the temperament. I have always believed that this one thing is what makes all the difference, but sadly I see people not seeing it.
I have met researchers who are not curious…teachers who are not learners…managers who are not empathetic…doctors who are not listeners…and writers who are not readers. And when they ask me why they are not growing any more, then I get amazed on how they cannot see the obvious reason.
Yes! People rise due to talent and excel due to technique, but they progress due to their temperament.
When you work on it, it works for you! 🙂
