Hey, one of the most important tips that will  help you become an awesome Test Automation engineer:

Do not ignore manual testing - Manual testing gives birth to new ideas to automate the process and ignoring them will just be like missing out on a great development opportunity.

One of the most import tricks would be to learn as many programming languages as you can. People believe that programming or coding is not required for testing but that's a myth. As mentioned by @Nishit the importance of manual testing, programming will help you learn the tools fasters as you'll know how exactly the tools work and you can take the best out of those testing tools. 

These are the languages that are a must:

  • C/C++
  • Java
  • SQL
  • Python
  • Perl
  • XML
  • HTML
  • CSS

Like the good old lady says, practice and hands-on experience are the primary factors that'll count! You'll be able to write better scripts only over time.

Most importantly, don't restrict yourself to one or two tools like Selenium, TestComplete. You don't need to be an expert at every testing tool, but it will be very beneficial if you get a hang of other tools like ranorex, appium, qtp, rft, etc

All the best :)
