consistency is all you need... find your zone.. keep practicing... and check around the forum to see if your keys are filed/cut correctly to make sure it isnt the key's problem that you are not succeeding...
The old saying goes 'Practice makes perfect'
Well.. then there's this one too: 'No one's perfect, so why practice.'
HELP - I've lost myself!

Dont file shoulder or tip - Move key shoulder back .75mm before punching.
Dont cut to deepest cut - insert wire under back of blank before punching. Thickness of a thin paper clip should suffice.
Dont release turning tension after striking head - keep hitting it up to 20 times to see if cylinder will eventuallt open. If it does your pressure technique needs refining.
And practise - practise - practise.
In general a cylinder should open after 1 -2 strikes and remember "life wasnt meant to be easy".
