Every professional or expert in a field started sometime from the beginning, from the bottom.
If you are thinking of starting to play billiards, either for fun or wanting to become an expert, we have a series of tips for you.
It may sound a bit cliché, but with any sport you’re going to need to invest your time and always have a positive attitude.
You’re not going to learn everything the first day… you need patience and a good philosophy.
Making mistakes is the most normal and in fact, the best way to learn.
If you take lessons or play with people better than you, take advantage of the opportunity and don’t go without playing because of embarrassment or pride.
Playing with people who already know what to do gives you a golden opportunity: they can observe and correct you and you can imitate them.
Don’t take it as an occasion to lose a game, but as a chance to learn more in order to win the next one.
Also, think if the situation were the other way around, if you are an expert in something and you can help others to learn, you are not going to judge them for not knowing basic things yet.
You are learning and you should enjoy the process, so practice whenever you can, alone or with others.
You must inform yourself and learn everything you can.
