Talent vs Passion

Is it heredity or is it environment? are leaders born or made?....genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration?

Should I encourage my kids to do activities they are not very good at and hope that persistence makes them better?  Or should we quit entirely and try something else?  How long do we try something before deciding that we are, at best. mediocre at it, maybe there is something else out there we can be really good at.  And how do we figure out what that is?

I recently read a blog where the writer passionately declares that there is no such thing as talent.  It is all about passion.  If you are passionate about something - you will spend a lot of time doing it and ultimately - you will be perceived as being very talented at it.

Your thoughts?
