Finally, I think a different Darwinism has emerged. It's no longer survival of the physical fittest (technology and health care advances have taken care of that or certainly leveled the playing field) but the talent and emotional fittest. There are a lot of truly talented people out there - but only those who have put in years of desire and dedication and had the emotional fortitude to manage it are the people you know or will know.
Can your talent be emotional stability? Yes. And I predict we'll see more of that in demand than ever before.
