Devi Shetty: I will… I will convey your message Sadhguru. I am sure he is watching this program (Laughter). Sadhguru, I believe that talent is something which is grossly exaggerated in success. It’s… when I was in medical school I used to teach martial art (Few Laugh). That was my passion (Sadhguru Laughs) and every time a Bruce Lee’s movie was released all these school kids would come and join in hordes to martial art schools. We used to call as ‘Bruce Lee phenomena…’

Sadhguru: They are gone after two weeks (Laughs).

Devi Shetty: Yes. And I use to see some kids whose physique is meant for martial art, who have the natural flair and I used to think “Oh this kid is going to get a black-belt.” And interestingly Swamiji after six months they are never there. The guys who go after the black-belt and you know do something very good in martial art, are the ones who join the school without any skills, without any talent, who worked very very hard, for everything they had to sweat it out but in the end, they are the ones who succeed. How do you explain this phenomena?

Sadhguru: See, for variety of reasons – let me not go beyond this – for variety of reasons, a certain individual could be born with a certain flair – physical flair, mental flair, emotional flair, style – you know five-year-old child, one has style, other is clumsy, okay. So the one with the style is not going to become necessarily a fashion thing, somebody else who seems to be clumsy may grow into something else. Like, you don’t know when a woman is pregnant, the child within that womb whether it’s a sage or a sorcerer, nor the woman know (knows?). The mother does not know whether she is producing a sage or a sorcerer or what.
