How to learn anything you want

Learning is less about how talented you are but about how much skill you've acquired.

Have you ever thought that maybe you don't have the talent to learn a language well?

I'm here to tell you that there's a big difference between talent and skill.

You might think they're the same, but they're not. Skill is something that's learnable.

Talent is the rate at which you acquire a skill.

It might seem that some people are more talented at learning a language than you. But if you put the same effort into the same learning practices, you would learn at the same rate.

You can acquire the same skills as anyone else regardless of your level of talent for learning a language.

So the next time you see someone doing something effortlessly, like speaking another language fluently, stop yourself before you start thinking you'll never do that like them. Because it's not about how talented they are. It's actually all about Y-O-U. It's about how much time and effort you put into acquiring the same skills as them. So focus your energy on studying and practicing so that you can be just as fluent and natural in your target language as you always wanted to be. So it's like my mom always told me when I was full of doubt—you can do it if you put your mind to it.
