Skills and passion are the major factor to become the most successful hacker. You can be a whitehat, blackhat or grey hat, it's really depends on you.

Here is the 20 ways to increase your hacking skills and think like a hacker :

  1. If you don't have a hacker lab, setup it as soon as possible. Here is the video to create your own hacker lab. People with only one computer can use Virtualbox to create their own hacker lab.
  2. Watch Ted Talks related to hacking. Because you need motivation too.
  3. Take 2 hours a day to learn about a hacker or hacker group as much as possible. You can consider it as a hobby.
