There is a relation between excellence and talent?

We often talk of talent as something strongly linked to excellence in performance. Often talk about talent is used as a criterion to eliminate some athletes, because according to someone they do not possess it or it’s used to nitpick forgetting the global relevance of the athlete. At this regard, the thought of a champion like Michael Phelps can serve to reflect on how much the athlete’s mental attitude is the main aspect to coach him/her to provide excellent performances.

“People say I have a great talent, but in my opinion excellence has nothing to do with talent. It is about what you choose to  believe and how determined you are to get there. The mind is more powerful than anything else.” (Michael Phelps)
