How To Learn New Skills.

They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, so make the most of time now while you’re still young. Have you ever watched someone you know speak a second language at the drop of a hat, or wished you could cook like a chef you’ve seen on TV? I definitely get kind of jealous when I see others showing off their talents, and I think I don’t really have any natural talents, but I guess some people have to choose what they want to learn and work hard to develop it.

Others also say that practise makes perfect, but I guess that can be the hurdle that most (definitely talking about myself) fall under. It can take a lot of effort to learn a new skill, but the pay off can be great, if you’re willing to try.

1# A journey starts with a single step.

I don’t know who said it, but they say “Focus on the possibility of success, not on the potential of failure.” That sounds pretty good in theory, however starting out learning something new can sometimes seem overwhelming thinking about how you’ll have to learn and practise. But you have to start someone, and all the greats weren’t great when they started, so if they can do it, why can’t you?

2# Eye of the tiger

I’ll be the first one to stick my hand up and say that I am not that great at staying focused. However when you are starting out, learning something new, it can sometimes seem overwhelming to take in all the new information, and you may want to get distracted. However you gotta push through if you want to develop a new skill. Stay on track, if you want to get a head.

3# Learn to love failure.

No one starts off being a pro at anything. It takes trying, and trying, and trying again, before you can get good at something. And the quickest way to learn something, is from your mistakes. You are a lot more likely to remember it, if you do it wrong, and you are able to find the right way around it. It can be a little embarrassing or awkward, but it will all be worth it in the end!
