DON'T WORRY IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE SKILL FOR AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE WILL
Skill is not a talent and talent is overrated. Skill can become a talent, a man born with great talent is just a myth. No one is born talented or gifted. Is Bill Gates born with special skills on computer already? Does Mark Zuckerberg already knew that he can create the facebook when he was just 10 years old? Can Michael Jordan dunk from the free throw line when he was just a teenager? No one is born with specific greatness, greatness is to be developed and something to work hard for.
Don't worry if you don't have any type of specific skill for as long as you have the will you can have that skill. Skill is developed through repetitions and not from ambitions. You can have an ambition to become great but if you don't have the will to repeat the process to get that ambition you will just remain dreaming.
Find a skill that you are willing to learn, may it be dancing, singing, writing, running, boxing, dribbling, swimming, sculpting, painting or any kind of activity and then simply do it everyday. Have the will to repeat and repeat everyday until you become a genius. Never stop repeating until you feel that you were already a master and once you reached that certain type of level...Repeat again.
You will go far if you have the will to have a high level skill. So stop thinking that you have no skills to become successful because there is no person who is born skilled like I told you before. Skills are to be developed and not to be dreamed of.
A lot of people will wonder why are you repeating the same movement over and over again, never mind what they are thinking because they don't know anything about greatness, all they know is how to watch and criticized others. The more you practice, the more you repeat the more you will become skilled so don't worry if you can't do anything for the moment, time will come and you will become the best in your chosen field if you don't stop practicing.
Boxing legends Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were not born great punchers. They told it before that repetition is the key to success. They work hard, harder than anybody else that is why their level is very high and they can make any opponent fall into their will. Boxing is what they do everyday, boxing is their life that is why they are the best. They also start form being a novice and then they just continue to develop by dedicating their lives into boxing.
One of the best guitarist Tom Morello was not a good guitarist before. He almost even quit playing guitar because he can't be good at it. He doesn't even know how to play a simple riff but one day he told himself that he will play 8 hours a day and keep getting better. Look where he is now... A legend and one of the best guitarist in the history of music.
A lot of professional nowadays also doubted themselves before, they thought that they cannot be good at something but their commitment prevails. They found the secret... it is to repeat and commit.
