It is not about the equipment

Giving a person an expensive set of hand-crafted Japanese knives doesn’t automatically make them a good cook.

Gifting somebody a set of premium carpentry stuff – saws, planers and chisels – doesn’t automatically turn them into quality craftsmen.

An expensive football jersey and a brand of cleats endorsed by Lionel Messi doesn’t make the wearer a better footballer.

Merely seating somebody in front of an exquisite grand piano will not help them render a flawless Moonlight Sonata.

Mastery isn’t about the equipment – it is about practice. If the addition of expensive equipment doesn’t make you a master, the lack thereof ought to not hold you back from putting in the hours.
