We love to idolize the greats, the talented superstars and athletes, as we imagine that they got good from being a demi-god. The reality is that they developed skill from practice. And as they practiced, they felt pain. And because they learned from this pain, they improved... fast. The skill today is the ability to learn from pain, as opposed to repeating mistakes due of ignorance, impatience, and hardheaded-ness. Take a listen.
