 21 Quotes About Practice

There are not too many things that I am naturally good at doing. I mean it… most of what I have learned and have learned how to do well has been the result of many hours and sometimes years of practice.

It’s NOT because I am slow learner it is just that I learn differently. I need a combination of words, explanation, particular levels of understanding of how everything works, and after that I need practical experience, and usually lots of it… Once learned though, once something is mastered, I have it.

So to honor the art of “practicing” here are 21 quotes about practice to help to encourage you if you need it!
