Arash’s “Work”

Talent?  What?  Talent??  No, you must have me confused with someone else. There is nothing talented about me at all.  Words like genius and God and all that jazz, when it’s applied to someone, no matter what the practice…it always troubles me cause the way I see it, it’s just hard work.  All that other stuff is just over the top nonsense.

If you’re not working hard, you’re losing hard.  You want to be something? Anything, I don’t care what it is, work hard at it.  Work, work, work your ass off…that’s it.  Then you will be called a genius, talented, a God and all that when you’ve just been bleeding to death over your work the entire time.  It’s time we take the myth and bullshit out of the equation.

You and I, we are just human beings capable of achieving great things through hard work.  That’s it.  Forget the myth, do the work.  Yeah, just shut up and do the work if it means that much to you.  That’s the deal.

Don’t talk about it, be about it.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
