Learning can be a painful process, especially at the beginning. Usually, the first steps in a new field are clumsy, require lots of focus, and still produce embarrassing results. At this point, it is obviously very easy to get discouraged and just give up. The temptation is so strong that such reaction is extremely common: it is not rare to see grown up kids still unable to read, write or count properly, unfortunately. Helping and supporting a new learner is important if you want him to succeed. Of course, once a certain level of skill has been reached, pain progressively becomes pleasure. Getting there completely changes the game: suddenly you are able to live incredible adventures instead of simply deciphering words on pages, or you can start sharing emotions with an audience instead of wondering what key to press next on that bloody instrument. The technical constraints still exist, but they just disappear, letting the virtuoso forgetting them and creating a whole new world around him, like the musician on my image. I'm quite sure you already told yourself: "oh this is nice, I wish I could do it too". Don't wait, act today and go learn new skills: you really can, you just need to decide it!
