I feel like I’m the worst player in the community

I’m not even comfortable considering myself “in the community” really. I tried making a video a couple of weeks ago for a friend and it took me about 2 hours to capture two tricks clean enough to share at all. More fun to just play that worry about that stuff.

I’m terrible for how long I’ve been throwing! I’ve committed to seeing how good I can get though. Learning new tricks every week

If you spend two hours just to get a clean clip done then you absolutely are part of the community!

That’s what most of us think but we are all 100% better than when we were learning a sleeper.

Wow that’s good. its amazing that yoyo is the oldest toy in the world so much history from weapons to skill toy

Not quite the oldest toy - the doll, for example, predates it by a solid stretch.
And the “weapon” origin is actually just a debunked marketing myth proliferated by Duncan as yo-yoing spread through the US.
But none of that makes yo-yoing’s history any less incredible or awesome.

To everyone saying “stick with it!”…I think that’s the key, and probably my biggest downfall with any skill based pursuit I get into.

It becomes incredibly difficult for me to stick with things once my motivation levels start to dip. I’m sure pretty much everyone is like this.

Yeah it’s really hard sometimes but you have to find something to spark that interest again. For me about the 6 month mark I started to get away from yoyoing and into cubing. Then I did lesson with Gentry and my motivation sparked again and has not stopped since!
