The more you practice, the better you get at it, the more it becomes a display of excellence. It may be something that you have no idea can become a display of excellence right now.
A really good friend of mine is a professional hacker. This guy can hack computers. A lot of people reading this may have technical skills and may think that it isn’t particularly impressive. But this guy can hack Facebook accounts. Do you know how much people love that? “Oh my gosh, you can hack Facebook accounts? That’s so cool!”
