Give Yourself Permission To Suck At Something

Newsflash: It's okay to suck at something you do. Give yourself permission.

I tell my students that failure is a good thing. Embrace your failures as a learning opportunity. Failure is how you learn. I've learned more from my failures than I've ever learned from my successes.

This is a good video that reminds you that whenever you are learning a skill, be it drawing, flying a kite, building something, working on your car, you are going to suck at it for awhile.

Be comfortable with that, and give yourself permission. No one is a master of something right off the bat. The link below is worth reading to remind us that it's important to give ourselves permission to suck at something.
