He's a Natural

You've heard the notion that every person has some kind of natural talent, something that makes them special. Mr. Rodgers and Sesame St. both espoused these notions to me as a child. Though now I can see that my mistake was taking it too much to heart back then. In elementary school I sat back and waited for my awesome natural talent to emerge. One year I'd try soccer, that wasn't it. So then hockey, baseball, ninja training class, waterskiing--and none of it seemed to be my natural talent. It seemed like such a rip-off. It wouldn't be until much later that I realize you actually had to put in some degree of work to cultivate any talent.
