    "bad" and "good" are relative, start comparing yourself to a potato and a pair of latex gloves instead of top-level professionals and you should be good

    Umm, I don't think that was what he was talking about, but in general, if you play a bunch of for glory, just watch your replays and see what you do wrong and try to fix it.

    Step 1: Attitude. Losing doesn't make you inherently bad. Try not to view matches in absolutes. While winning should be a goal, improving is a better goal. Always strive to improve. Improve your strengths, change your weaknesses. Watch gameplay of yourself to see what worked and what didn't. Watch tutorials or streams of high level gameplay to see what high level players are doing and try to implement things you see into your gameplay. It's never too late to learn/unlearn habits.
    There are plenty of peeps that will be willing to play friendlies (especially if you are capable of making it to any tournaments). Playing friendlies is a great way to improve. People are generally friendly in person in the community. You can play a set and ask people what they think you should work on/what are your weaknesses. The community always strives to help each other improve.
    Like others before me in the thread have stated the more specific you can be with your questions the better we can help answer them. Are you just losing? Struggling to recover? Difficulty edge guarding? Neutral game? Reactions? etc.

    The first step is to take a look at guides and videos online to get a better idea of how your character works. Your profile says you main Mario, so why not check out Smashboard's Mario guide section, and/or some videos online? That'll give you an idea of how he works, what his combos are, and the technicalities that people have learned.

    Of course, you don't want to be a complete carbon copy of what you find in those guides. Head into Training Mode, and try out the combos and tricks you've learned. Once you've got the hang of them, try and see if you can create anything unique yourself! It's fine if you can't, but having combos and tricks that you do that most other players of that character don't will help surprise opponents who are familiar with that character's usual combos and strategies.

    Also, as has been suggested, take a look at your replays and see where you're slipping up. Are there any common things you do that end up with your opponent hitting you? Do you have the hang of all of the mechanics? Look at where you're making mistakes, and then make an effort not to do that in your next game. Slowly, you'll start to fix those mistakes!

    Lastly, practice is important! Keep playing matches, and take a look at what you do wrong in your losses! You can do it! :)
