6 Principles to Embrace in Order to Sharpen Your Skills Through Practice

What are the different ways to polish your skills?

Every human being in existence dreams of accomplishing one ultimate goal. Success. But success is particularly unattainable without one specific habit. Disciplined practice. Regardless of what talent you naturally possess, or what career you pursue, it’s impossible to perform with mastery unless blood, sweat and tears are poured into endless practice. Lifestyle Writer Justin Fogleman advises that “Everyone has to do it in some way or another. We all have to do something multiple times, and repeat the same or different actions over and over, in order to achieve our desired goals. This is practice…  It helps you improve. If you routinely practice something, the likelihood of you doing better on that thing is higher.”

Here are a few tips on how to make the most out of practice:


1) Humble Yourself

If you already see a maestro when you look in the mirror, ego will deceive you into forgetting the value of practice. Always approach tasks in life with a a mindset of self-improvement.

2) Take Notes

It’s impossible to understand or outperform your skill-level without measuring it first. Compare yourself to the best of the best, and be mindful of your track-record. Use your observations to set aspirational goals.

3) Enhance Your Strengths

If there’s something you do well, take pride in it and maintain your proficiency. Use cycles of repetition and rest either to sustain, or expand your remarkable abilities.

4) Supplement Your Weaknesses

Practice is a ritual which is fundamentally intended to neutralize weaknesses. If there are variables which interfere with peak performance, figure out how to compensate for their negative effects.

5) Create a Conducive Atmosphere

Don’t just practice for the sake of practicing. Practice in a climate that helps you be analytical. Eliminate all distractions from your immediate surroundings so that you can focus on gradual improvement.

6) Celebrate Progress

Don’t just allow your transformation to unfold without appreciating it. If practicing starts making a difference, take some time to pat yourself on the back. Rewarding yourself for growth creates an incentive to keep striving for more.


Good practice essentially boils down to two factors: passion and dedication. If you truly want to be the best at something, you have to be passionate enough to give it your all. And if you truly want the honor of possessing skill, you’ve got to be in it to win it. Practice is easy to miss, but disregarding it has dire consequences. So don’t be afraid to practice often. Practice a lot, practice again, and practice some more.
