It is not unusual to be bad at things you just started and don’t understand.
I see a lot of people ready to quit after one or two tries at something, and then when they see that I’m good at those things, they think I must have been born with my talent.
I wasn’t. I struggled for years and I did things that weren’t always helpful and I didn’t know enough to understand why they weren’t working. But I kept trying and I kept learning and eventually I became “good” at it.
(Sometimes becoming better at something means you have to learn and admit that you were wrong about the way you were doing it before.)
Struggle isn’t a sign that a task cannot be accomplished. It doesn’t mean you weren’t meant for something just because it’s hard. It’s okay to think something is difficult and keep trying anyway. Don’t be afraid to make an effort.
And if you find that after you’ve done the work, you still aren’t good at something…that’s okay too. You don’t have to be good at everything — nobody else is. Just remember not to put down anyone else who is trying just because it turned out not to be for you.
