“A smooth sea never makes a skillful sailor.”
Skill is carved from the experience we get from challenges. You have to face adversity to get better. The best of the best in any field didn’t get there by competing against or watching people with half as much talent as they have. They got their by shadowing the best, measuring themselves against the best, and grinding until they could call themselves the BEST. Much like iron sharpens iron, successfully dealing with problems makes you stronger each time. Don’t shy away from issues, learn and grow from each experience.
Have a great day,
