I bet you’ve heard the term, “practice makes perfect.” And indeed, repetition is the mother of skill; you and I both know you don’t become a master of something overnight! When you learn by repetition, the skill set becomes a habit.
But there is one very important thing to note! If you are “practicing” the wrong thing, you are sowing the wrong habit! Practice and correction make perfect!
Is Your Life A Constant Dance Of Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Back?
Have you ever felt like successful people just seem to be playing by a totally different rule book? The bad news is, they are! The good news is, you can start playing by this different book
What happens quite often is, people pick up a skill and then assume they’ve already mastered it. At that point, you stop being teachable. It is a fantasy to think you only need to hear something once or twice in order to get the full effect. And he who chases fantasies, has poverty waiting for him at the finish line.
It’s likely, along with many of us, you have made this mistake – maybe even more than once! Next thing you know, you’re hitting a wall or obstacle while pursuing that skill and generally you just give up… because you think the whole thing isn’t working. And then you throw that skill set, niche or even career path down the drain because you don’t believe it’ll bring you any success.
I’m not here to say you need to be persistent. After all, we know doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is literally the definition of insanity. You need to CORRECT and persist!
Once you begin achieving success and actually getting results – that is what you should repeat over and over. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that “mastering” something means you are incapable of learning something new. Our economy, our world, our message media are constantly changing. Therefore, the need for you to refine your skills and craft is totally necessary for continued success!
If you are one of those who have given up on something because you hit a wall, go back! You have already been a witness to the fruits of your labors, you might just need to correct something in your process in order to keep moving forward. Unfortunately, 98% of the population will tie their failure to the marketplace, while 2% know there is plenty of money flowing to increase their profits.
It is easy to get discouraged, but as long as you stay teachable and correct your errors and processes, your skills WILL improve. Leave me your comments below and share this post with your circle of influence on Facebook or Twitter.
