Hacking is not as easy as we see in movies, this is not one click work, This is not work of running scripts only, This is not only know about Operating Systems like Kali Linux, Parrot OS, Blackarch etc. In the last I will say this is not a particular course syllabus.
Hacking is an art of exploitation, and any art becomes bright day by day when you practice more with full of dedication. It is an along (Life long) journey with computer and its technology.

Why people can’t learn ?
By profession, I am a trainer. And I love to provide training of RHCSA, RHCE, Ethical Hacking, and Penetration Testing. You can write me at email@example.com for request training by online live classes as per your budget.
I have seen many people to touch failure line, some to touch success line.
The people who are not get success in life, they make following mistake. If you want to be professional hacker you should not repeat these mistakes.
Mistake No. #1 Lazy to learn new things:-
Learning new things related technology work as fuel in your career growth. Without leaning you can’t move one step ahead.
When you think you have learn every thing by heart, what have been taught in class room. You dont need to learn something else. This is the weakest point in your career and stop your moving steps towards achieving your goal.
You can’t be professional hacker, If you stop learning new things.
Avoid this mistake and move forward.
Mistake No. #2 Going to bore practice same thing.
As I described before in this article, practicing same thing (Commands, attacks, searching vulnerability, exploiting same system) again and again make you perfect hacker.
But it is really very boring, step.
You must make it interesting, it can happen. If you give appraisal your self after completing same task.
Watch some motivation videos, Hacking movies, remind your goal.
Again remember Practice same thing again and again
Mistake No. #3 Losing the patients
In the starting stage, when you start to attack on system it is not compulsory to get success every time. it is happened Due to security patch updation.
You should not lose your patients, and research again and again to find out what mistake you was doing.
Next update your knowledge and try again with full of confidence.
If you want to avoid this mistake, you should perform attacks on vulnerable systems and application in the starting phase.
Mistake No. #4 Loose the focus
what focus you have made, never lose it. It is possible you will face lots of problems in your career growth. when you defeat these problem your goal will be clear and you can achieve it.
It is not possible to get expected result every time, then what will you do?
Will you loose your focus? No and Never.
Only one thing you should remind in your life, no matter how much problems stand against you, you will not leave your focus.
If you lose the focus you will not achieve your goal.
Mistake No. #5 Giving up a goal
At last and very important, giving up a goal. If you have started to learn hacking for becoming expert hacker, why are you going to give up?
If you lose the focus you can create again, if you are going to bore to practice same thing you can make it interesting.
But if you give up your goal to become hacker you cant come again.
I will say again, Never give up.
