You become…

You become a good boyfriend by being a bad boyfriend first.

You become a good writer by being a bad writer first.

You become a good driver by being a bad driver first.

You become good by being bad first.

It’s hard to be good at anything in life right away.

Not to say impossible.

It all takes practice.

And patience.

Patience with yourself.

If you think you’re not talented enough, that you’re not good enough, remember that no one ever was.

Remember that we all started from a position of “I’m not good enough.”

Be patient.

With yourself.

Keep practicing.

And keep putting in the work…
