I was asked what keeps me practicing after all these years. The question almost surprised me because at this point I never even thought about an option not to practice. That's the thing. There is no longer a choice. You go from taking a seemingly difficult task, maybe practicing 6 days a week, and you do it until it becomes a habit so hardwired into your being that there is no longer an option not to do it. It doesn't take any amount of skill or talent. It's persistence. Nothing more nothing less. If in the beginning this is hard for you, give yourself a reason to do, and then never forget that damn reason.
