Most of us do not “love to practice”. And that is too bad. Because practicing and knowing how to practice open doors to success. Contrary to popular belief, it is not just raw talent or even genius. Don’t believe it? Here is the story about four kids who spent huge amounts of time practicing how to play the violin (told by their mom). Three of the four eventually put away their violins to pursue other stuff. But
… the courage to embrace long-term, large-scale projects outside the realm of their formal academic training. All of them credit their Suzuki (violin training) days for ingraining in them the habit of patient practice that has seen them through the long, slow development of mastery.
BTW, on the subject of “genius”, recent study suggests that genius is as much an attitude or mindset as anything else.
