      Is it learned, or is it an ability that everyone can tap into?

      The question comes as I was driving for work the other day, early in the morning and 3AW's Ross and John brought this up, as they'd heard a sports-caster refer to someone as playing as though they 'know hard work is a skill'.

      What do you think?

      Personally I'm not as sure I'd call it a skill as much as I'd call it a 'good habit'. You don't normally unlearn 'skills', however I feel as though you can replace habits.
      Hard work could certainly be replaced with laziness/inaction.

      I wouldn't say hard work is a skill to be honest but more of a motivation. You as a person need to feel motivated to want to work hard.
