A recent study showed that in order to become a good ________ (fill in the blanks with whatever sport you like) you have to have at least 10.000 hours of practise under your belt. This is besides having a major factor called talent, to become a succesful athlete. If you want to lose weight, grow long hair naturally or learn a language the common denominator is it takes time and effort.
There is no succes formula that one day you wake up and speak fluent Spanish, have long hair (without extensions) or be NBA material (being 1.54 that would be something!). If you want something in life, there are no short cuts. Of course you can be lucky and it is possible that the stars align everything comes together and there it is, that magic shot. The shot that makes brides tear up and maybe even win an award.
But I do not want to hope that stars align and so I am going to practise, practise, practise and then when I am done I'll practise some more.
