    The version with "by practising" is much more natural. You could use "with practice" in the first.

    Note my changes to your post above. Please write complete sentences and remember that we don't put a space before a closing punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
