Just Remember, no matter what do you want to become you should always remember that for achieving to the title “Greatest”, you should have a talent, in our case, for moving pieces, passion for playing chess, desire to compete, of course, dedication and hunger for learning. And this 5 secrets for becoming grandmaster is for you.
“Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.” Kevin Durant
Talent or Hard work it’s a matter of long discussion and thousands of examples, but one thing is sure you can’t achieve something only with the wish or inborn quality.
"Maybe if I didn’t have the talent in chess I’d find the talent in something else. The only thing I know is that I have talent in chess, and I’m satisfied with that". Magnus Carlsen
Magnus is, of course, talented Chess player, but What made him earn the title of Grandmaster? No words can be added here but only “Hard Work” and wish.
While playing chess, be ready for something big to enter your life because there are two solutions for it, not to enter the world of chess or enter completely. Your chess journey won’t be easy but it worth it.
After all, talent is also important, because you need to have wings to be able to fly. Find your talent inside.

His teachers told that he was "mentally slow, unsociable child. Hard Work, Years of Dedication and a little-undiscovered talent? Maybe yes.
Those names which already engraved with the gold letters, in the history of chess, were dedicated chess players, who gave a life for this game, changed the history and made a difference. They worked hard, passionately and won, not only chess tournaments but also won the victory of life.
