"There is no such thing as natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls." -- Lee Trevino, golfer

Whatever you seek to succeed at or become very good at, you must learn to keep at it. In sports, most athletes spend hours, months and even years training and preparing for a great feat that will last minutes at a great tournament or competition like the Olympics. Every successful boxer spent  time working out, fighting hard and beating himself to the grind so he can deliver world class performance.
Mark Twain, (real name Samuel Langhorne Clemens) an American Author and humorist once noted, that it usually took him more than three weeks  to prepare for a good impromptu speech.That stresses the need in being ever ready.
You will never become a Master of a craft you have not served well enough. Serve your craft, move from average to Genius. You can go from playing small to world-class! It is possible. This is your destiny.
Not many super achievers were born with the natural touch of Genius but rather they worked it out till they attain that level of mastery.
There is an inspiring piece in the biography of Magic Johnson, he usually will wake up early and practice 200 shots every morning before he went to school. Everyday. Johnson recounting this told USA Weekend  "I practiced all day!"
There is a popular law called the 10,000-hour rule, it basically explains that people who achieve world class at their crafts have been known to spend about a total of 10,000 hours or more rehearsing, practising and giving their very best.

There is Greatness inside of you but you need to work at it, dig it up and bring it to the fore until it's unleashed on your world!

Rise to Greatness!
