Guides on learning a skill

Anyone can learn a particular skill, it takes determination, commitment and the right mindset. Henry Ford says" if you think you can then you can but if you think you can't then you can't. In other words to learn a new skill, you have to break some emotional barriers that you might have such as I do not want to make an error in front of others, what if my work comes out bad. All of those things are blah blah blah. Everyone makes mistakes.

This new skill you want to learn, if you have to know why you want to learn it, this will serve as a motivational factor. Is it something you are passionate about and any other reasons you may have.

Afterwards, figure out where you can learn this skill, do you need to attend classes or workshop. If subjects being taught are optional, focus on the ones that are the most important to the skill you want to learn. Make sure you understand what you are being taught.  Do ask questions if you do not understand and do not miss your classes or workshop.

Practice regularly, carry out several tasks that will require you to use the skill you have acquired, eventually it will become a part of you and you will excel at it.
