To master any skill, you need to spend TIME, ENERGY (effort and money), and you need to experience some FRUSTATION and you need to change the way you think and do your work. Do you agree with this statement? if you do please explain why and if you dont please explain why

You've undoubtedly heard of the old saying, "jack of all trades, master of none"? I think that's what happens when someone doesn't put in time, energy, and effort. And yes, there is going to certainly be some frustration along the way, no matter what you are trying to master. I am 56 years old and took up the violin 3 months ago. I am at this point no master, but I am learning to take command of the instrument and can now play several songs. It took a lot of time, a lot of energy and doubly more effort, but I did it and the frustration level has been kept at a minimum.

Based on your comment, I remember one thing that I miss. I should put ENJOYABLE in my statement. Not only you need time, energy and effort but you must enjoy whatever new skill you are aiming. Do you agree?

To master any skill you need to practice "practice makes perfect", spend time, energy, and money. You have to have a goal in mind and you must be a high achiever. It is always frustrating when you are trying to master any skill and can't do things perfectly at first.

You are absoultely right. That is why I put energy is effort plus money. To practice well you need money to do that right? :) Thank you for your comment

I agree with that but I would go even further and add DEDICATION and CONCENTRATION. Frustration is always present when one seeks perfection but if one wants to learn purely for enjoyment and expression (as I did when I learned to play various instruments) frustration does not enter into the equation as long as one is not too hard on himself and his abilities. +
