It sounds like you could use a little perspective. Find some players you admire and ask them how long it took to get where they are. You may be surprised at the answers you get.
Great point. Expectations shouldn't be set so high that they have little to no chance of being met. This is why most players struggle to improve. They wanna start off several skill levels beyond their current development, and practice becomes more disappointing than encouraging.

This was a common pitfall with music students back when I was giving lessons. A lot of beginning drummers and wannabe guitarists spend hours trying to learn something way beyond their skill level, beyond what their current limitations allow. These students typically quit because "It's too hard!". But it wouldn't be so difficult if they'd develope their skills in reasonable, progressive increments, building up to the more challenging goals.
