Undiscovered Talent

I have this internal dialogue sometimes that tells me that I’m good at something, even when all of the evidence points in the other direction. Despite that fact that I have failed at it five times, I still can convince myself that it was just because the setting wasn’t right, or I didn’t have a chance to prepare as well as I needed to. I just really think that, despite empirical data telling me I’m wrong, I have a talent that just hasn’t been discovered yet.

Why is that? And who do I believe, my experience, or my gut?

If we can learn anything from American Idol, it’s probably that that my gut is full of it.
