Look for a good teacher that you can get to. Learn from them (usually they can always teach some things you don't know, and give inspiration and focus. Main thing: PRACTICE what you've learned especially outside of class. If you're too poor to afford classes, no worries! Look around for people who practice and train with them. Posting an ad on Craigslist helped me find someone to train gao baguazhang with when I couldn't afford classes and didn't have interested or skilled people available to train with. Practice no matter what your circumstances are: no excuses. Nothing gets done unless you actually do something. Good luck.
