The difference between a professional and an amateur is that pros make difficult things look easy. It is true in sports, in the arts, and in every profession.
But don't let the professionals fool you. They may have special gifts and aptitudes, but the thing that sets them apart is they practice, practice, practice.
People who want to be a "natural" - someone who has great proficiency but doesn't have to spend time honing their skills - never make it. They always wash out.
If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right. And the only way to do it right is to keep practicing.
