My study this morning was the BYU magazine article for January on being True to the Faith. Within this article was a quote from a recent issue of Fortune magazine where it indicated "we will achieve greatness only through an enormous amount of hard work over many years....the good news is that our lack of a natural gift is irrelevant---talent has little or nothing to do with greatness....Nobody is great without work!! "What it takes to be great, Fortune, Vol. 154, NO 9 (Oct. 30, 2006.)"

Wow, what a wonderful quote, keeping in perspective nothing great comes from natural talent, when greatness comes, it comes through long, hard work! (That explains motherhood, but I have yet to achieve greatness by any means!) And along with this, President Hinckley, further explains that with this must be carried its motto, "honesty is the best policy." In matters of honesty, there are no shortcuts...There is only the simple, honest truth spoken in total candor. And I think there is nothing more honest than good, hard work!!

Can you tell, I love his insights?
