Most "witches" making these kinds of claims are either full of B.S. or well, full of B.S. Developing abilities like ESP, lucid dreaming, or control over one's environment takes study and dedication. While some people ARE born, more sensitive, than others with the proper motivation and discipline just about anyone is capable of plumbing the inner and outer depths for knowledge.
Considering you just started, I can understand it being very tempting to want everything now, or faster if you please, but just like a scientist has to study for years to become an astronomer- so does a magick user have to study and master themselves to become proficient in their craft.
Notice I said "master of self" and not "perfect." Perfection is not really an option.
Hope this helps you out a bit! Stay focused and have fun in your studies!
