Many people mistakenly believe that if they don't love a task when they first try it, it's not a passion for them. However, it's difficult to love something you're terrible at. In order to find full enjoyment of a task, one must progress from being a novice to at least pretty good, if not great. It's important to be proud of incremental progress and acknowledge that everyone starts as a beginner. Instead of focusing on how much you lack, focus on how much you've improved compared to the past. Acknowledge that you are trending upward and recognize that you will continue to improve in the future.
