Many people want to be better at something. Or they want to learn a new skill or diversify their activities. But sometimes they don’t know how to get better, or even how to learn to get better.
Maybe, they see their favorite YouTuber’s newest video and wish they could be as good as them so they can make their own YouTube videos.
Perhaps, there is a person they look up to, that has a position or does a job they wish they could one day have, but feel like their skills are so poor compared to them they could never do it.
I have one piece of advice – Go out there and do it!
Seriously, just start doing it!! We think we need to be experts or highly skilled in order to begin, but that’s not true at all. Go out there and just start doing what you want to do. Yes you might be awful, yes you might look back and be embarrassed, but every time you do it you’ll learn something.
In the Order of the Phoenix when Harry was secretly teaching fellow students how to defend themselves, he told them one very profound thing that we all need to remember, “Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than we are now. Students. If they can do it, why not us?”
If you want to be great, do it, learn from your mistakes, keep getting better, and begin growing in confidence in your new skill.
That YouTuber or other hero you want to emulate, they started at some point as beginners just like you are, they just went out there and started doing it.
You should too
