If I am asked, "Which is more important for success: the natural ability you are born with or hard work"? Then I will probably say that i need both natural ability and hard work to become successful. In fact, I believe, there is another important factor one needs to be successful is " luck".
Natural ability is must for any work. And with God's grace, every person is gifted with at least one natural talent. Now that could be anything, some people can sing very well, while some people can dance very well, some can handle their business very well etc.... Now it depends on every person to recognize that talent in him or her. But if a person tries to do something without natural ability, he may complete the work but he may not gain success through it.
Hard work is another factor without which I believe, success is impossible. A person may be talented and he may be lucky, but if he doesn’t work with his talent, I don't think anybody will ever recognize it. As some wise person said, "The harder I work, the luckier I get". For example, if a person has a natural talent of art like painting, but if the person never tries to refine his skills, then he can never become a successful painter, whom the world will praise.
And lastly, luck plays the final game. Some people do not believe in luck, they consider it as a superstitious thing. However, I feel that luck is as necessary as hard work and natural ability for a person to become successful. For instance, a person with business sense puts all his hard work in a project, to make it a success, will never have it if he is unlucky. Like, if the project is cancelled at the last moment, then all his talent and hard work would go in vain. On the other hand, if a person is lucky then that luck may bring him another opportunity.
All in all, I think, for a person to become successful, he needs all three hard work, natural gift and luck. Neither of it alone can fetch a person success.
