Is learning webtechnologies a matter of adapting?

I am familiair with html, css, bootstrap and js and now into meteor, but what you guys express here is hard to follow.
I have set myself the goal to upscale my software technology knowlegde with a financial background to make myself a bit of an unicorn combined with data science, but it is not easy to adapt your brain into a multiple of disciplines.
I must say that all learning is hard and that i see some slow developments where it becomes more familiair and natural.
Nonetheless it is like you need to be born with a technical mind.
I will keep trying but it consumes a lot of time.
