Have you ever watched a talent show like The Voice or America’s (or Australia) Got Talent and seen someone with so much natural ability audition, only to get less and less compelling as the season goes on? On the flip side, have you witnessed a good talent find their lane, and suddenly eclipse the field?


It is a fascinating recipe for success… natural ability, grit, luck, and the aptitude to learn and grow, all mixed together to create something extraordinary.


"Mark, your natural ability is going to run out at some point, you’re going to need your work ethic to get you through.”  - Ira Silverman (Mark’s Dad)


Today on Mastering Midlife:


  • The magic of preparing for the first performance, speech, or event all your life
  • Success is more than talent, more than hard work
  • Watch Jennifer Hudson on American Idol, and watch her now
  • I had natural aptitude for learning, drugs, sex and rock and roll put a stop to that
  • My natural ability and intuition as a coach had me stand out, my years of training has me excel
  • In Midlife, the need to evolve and master your craft is even more urgent
