It’s common for humans to look for shortcuts.
Especially in any self development area.
Tons of books and courses offer “secret” techniques.
The one “weird trick” to lose belly fat.
On the one hand, we know that change takes time.
Learning things takes time.
Developing skill takes time.
A common idea or even “meme” is that if you practice something for 10,000 hours, you will become world class in that particular area.
For example, if you started practicing the piano today, you would be world class in 10,000 days, or 27 years.
15 years or so if you practiced for two hours a day.
But that is if you are competing with everybody else on Earth.
For most of our skills, we can apply the attacking bear theory.
The one that was running at the two hikers.
And one of the hikers started putting on his running shoes.
“Dude, you can’t run faster than a bear!” protested his buddy.
“Don’t need to,” replied the hero. “I just need to run faster than you.”
When you are in a job interview, you don’t need to be the best in the world.
You just need to be the best in the group.
If you get into a street fight, you don’t need to be a kung fu master, or even a decent fighter.
You just need to better than the bully who decided to pick on you.
And when it comes to anything involving language, it’s easy.
Because few people even know that language, and how you use it, is something you can practice and enhance.
Most people assume that some people are good at it, and some people aren’t.
Imagine if you lived on pushup planet.
Where everything was determined by how many pushups you could do.
Yet nobody had any idea that you could practice doing pushups, and get better.
Some people might be able to do 10 or 20.
But the people who ran society could do 50, some even 100.
And you were the ONLY ONE who realized that in only a few months, you could get up to a couple hundred pushups, through practice, and rule the planet.
Language is the same way.
And when you practice just a little bit a day, you’ll soon be able to dominate.
