“Patience and persistence,tend to win out in the end.”
A young woman with a violin case stopped at a sidewalk café in New York just across the street from the musician’s union. “Excuse me,” she said, “Does anyone know how to get to Carnegie Hall?” About ten musicians turned around and answered, “Practice, practice, practice!”
Psychologists believe that it takes about ten thousand hours of conscious practice to master a skill. That is almost three hours a day for ten years!
In today’s world of quick fixes, everyone is looking for a silver bullet, but there are no shortcuts to success. You’ll need patience and perseverance to become a great pool player.
Don’t get frustrated if you feel stuck at a certain level. As long as you continue to work on the fundamentals and build your knowledge, your skill level will progress. Keep in mind that plateaus are part of the learning process—learn to enjoy it. Set high standards and apply yourself with a never say die determination.
Develop a positive attitude. Learn to appreciate that your current skill level is only a temporary stop on a long journey to excellence. Have patience and enjoy the trip!
It takes time to become a champion!
