You can be a genius, came to the world with a gift talent that many of others would wish to have, have the biggest capacities and born in a modest circumstances, but if you don’t practice probably you won’t see the chance of greatness. We tend to compare the great personalities with the successful people who put hard effort and passion into what they do. Today, we live in a very respective society where the majority of us judge others as “losers” or failures. Is it possible to be led to a first impression by someone’s physical aspect and qualify them as a loser? Unfortunately yes, today’s society is led on by first impressions. Just by glancing we qualify what the person’s social status must be, we judge them without even knowing them. This is one of the reasons why many talented people haven’t been able to show their best effort, today’s society doesn’t let them be or show the best that they can be. For example, we have Venezuela’s situation: unfortunately, the majority lives in poverty. To this we add the governors’ lack of “drive” or efficiency because they don’t worry about education, sport or culture. How are we going to discover all those citizens’ talents and abilities? And even if we did find some, how are we going to educate and take full advantage of their talents? We rely on very few resources and very little attention from the authorities to collaborate with the country’s cultural growth, in the search of young talented people, and if in many other countries the economic level influences the development of geniuses, you only have to put yourself in a third world country where the hierarchy of the important things is completely inverted, where corruption is over the top, and where many other factors affect the growth and the opportunities to become successful and to fit into a field of work that possesses great qualities. One of the tiniest focuses of cultural development well manages is the Venezuelan symphony orchestra, founded by the master teacher Abreu who has taking advantage of the talent and focused in help through music children and youth with limited resource, implementing the music, the constant practice and the perfection at the time of playing. We can say that this work has been a big importance for us, the Venezuelan and now, directed by Gustavo Dudamel considerate a music genius who started from a young age with the violin and progressed through his live with a constant practice and is now who hold the reins of leadership of this orchestra. That all depend on where and when we were raised: In the success you are brilliant, you want to learn and in this way through teaching’s to be an expert. The crucial thing is to take advantage of the opportunities we face in life. Even if you have the biggest talent, if you don’t enjoy it and take advantage of the biggest opportunities you will not succeed in live. They are a unusual opportunities that do not know at what time you can get, is a lucky rush and you need to know how to fruition. Lamentably the succeed is for those people who already have a talent, have a good basic training. Also, if you come from a rich family you have a major advantage. This is why the sociologist say that succeed is a cumulative advantage where the most of the factors where you get on show and guide to your succeed. Those who succeed is because of his perseverance and practice, that effort put in what they wanted to achieve. Receive that satisfaction of having achieved. Is important to be clear that the succeed don’t come by they own, you have to fight for them In our case exist the talent but unfortunately for lack of recourses and interest are not captured, there’s a very few cases where the people how gets the opportunities succeed. This is why in our country is much more pronounced the situation presented in the book about the opportunities and environment that allow the individual to achieve succeed. Claudia, Andrea y Magally
