School of POP: Talent vs. Character 101

"Sometimes our talent can take us places where our character cannot sustain us."-Pastor Keith Battle

One of the most imperative lessons to be learned in our society is that talent doesn't equate great character. In fact, it takes great character to catapult your talent to the next level--if you are aiming for longevity. I am sure you have seen many talented people who just quite never made it because of their attitude or artists whose fall from stardom can be seen play by play including a free soundtrack followed by a mug shot, court hearing and then a "where are they now" moment. With all of the energy it takes to chase your dream who needs a character flaw to be the reason why it never happened or the reason why it ended. I'm just saying...I want to see you make it Superstar!
