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 “practice” the wrong thing, you create the wrong habit! Practice – and correction – make perfect!
Quite often, people pick-up a skill and then assume they’ve already mastered it. Unfortunately, at that point, you stop being teachable. It is a fantasy to think you only need to hear something once or twice, 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 hit a wall or obstacle while pursuing that skill and generally, 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.
Look, we know doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results, is literally the definition of insanity. That’s why we’ve got to CORRECT, as we persist! Making small adjustments along the way will help us get where we want to go!
Whatever allows you to begin achieving success and actually getting results, that is what you should repeat over and over. But don’t make the mistake of thinking “mastering” something means you’re incapable of learning something new. Our economy, our world, our message media, constantly change. Therefore, you MUST refine your skills, if you want long-term success.
If you are someone who gave 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, to keep moving forward. It’s time to evaluate yourself and see where you can make corrections and adjustments to move past your personal “wall.”
It’s easy to get discouraged, but as long as you stay teachable and correct your errors and processes, your skills WILL improve. Now, I’d love to know your thoughts on this topic. Have you encountered that “wall” we discussed? How did you move past it? What corrections do you need to make to continue moving forward? Leave your comments below!
