I normally ignore most of the drivel on news sites like CNN, but this is a very interesting article:

Interesting article. Not just hard work pays off, it has to be mind numbing, soul breaking work for you to be #1 at whatever your goal is. So of course only those with the disciple to do that get there. However when it comes to sports as an example I believe that there is such a thing as natural ability. No one works harder at his game than Vjay Singh, and yet he is still not as good as Tiger. If it was just a matter of working harder then he should be better or at least as good.
