Analyze each part of the skill you wish to master, then put it all together to create a fluid, form. Develop first a theoretical understanding, then a practical one. When you practice your knowledge, your work will flow and appear effortless.
Practice relentlessly. Spend long hours practicing. Keep a regular schedule for your activity. If you have long gaps between practice, you will lose some momentum in mastering your skill. The cumulative effect of practice will make you exceptional.
Self-discipline will come from imagination. When you can create a burning desire by imagining your ultimate success, self-discipline will happen spontaneously. If you don’t have a burning desire, you may want to rethink your goals. Unless you feel passionate about your goals, the smallest obstacle will throw you off course.
Believe in yourself. Recall all the previous successes you’ve had in your life. Use these memories to build an enduring self-confidence. When you believe that you can do something, you will find a way to make your belief come true.
If you methodically prepare for your own particular game you will find yourself on the way to mastery.
