Believe it or not, you are gifted. You have the potential in you to accomplish more than you have previously imagined; all you have to do is bring it out. It sounds simple, right? But what you need to understand is that it requires both effort and time.
Take math for example. Many people mistakenly believe that they're bad at it. It's just something that they're either good at or not. It's a misconception that they learned somehow along the way. What these people need to know is that with practice, their skills can get better.
It's basically the same way with any skill. With the right practice, you can get better over time. If you learn and consistently apply best practices, you will ultimately progress.
You've probably heard the phrase "practice makes perfect." Well, in fact, practice makes permanent. Your practice, good or bad, will make your skill level more permanent, so make sure it's good practice.
Good practice increases your skill level; bad practice decreases it. Make sure you're intentional about improving. When you practice, be actively aware of your progress. Just putting in effort without focusing on improving will leave your skills stagnant, or worse, make what you need to improve more permanent.
Effort is the key. You need to put in the effort yourself to become more skillful. As you put in more effort, the more skillful you will become, and you will be inevitably closer to your goal.
