It is not possible to become someone like Magnus/Garry/Fischer/Vishy etc . They are some one like Chess Genius. Now if you know there is a vast difference between the word Talented and to be Genius . All Chess Players whom I have named above and also World Champions like Alekhine/Capa/Botvinnik/Tal had some IQ level which normal Human brain does not have . An Average Human Being has 100-120 IQ which compared to Magnus/Garry have 180 + as their IQ Score . You see it brings a significant difference in learning Chess .
True you can do some hard work, & maintaining Chess Discipline you can steer to become a Player up to some 2400 level or even rise above. With the right Training which is the utmost importance you should be able to go ahead but it is not a guarantee that you would become someone like Magnus . As Garry Kasparov himself said that " Magnus is a Force of Nature " before he became World champion so it is important that you become realistic in this view.
Here is a bitter Truth :
The worst thing is all Chess players who are even 1400-1500 ELo can attain the rating of 2000 + but they could not do even in their lifetime . They fail to find the Errors in their games and they do not have the attitude to improve or they do not know how to improve .( It is said by a Famous GM )
Anyways the Best ways to improve your game .
- 1) Make sure you hit the best Coach.
- 2) Believe in yourself that you can do well .(Attitude Factor )
- 3) Play with High rated Players .(Most important)
- 4) You can choose your Openings and the first 15-20 moves you can by
- 5) Middle Game & End games is always a scope of improvement .You can practice Puzzles and analyse Games of GMs.
There can be some more ways but I believe the above can be a good lesson .
