Have you asked yourself the question why you are not learning from the internet?
I'd say, start to pick one language and go with it all the way. Start with a easy tutorial, and NOT only read but make, NOT copy but type. And make sure you understand whats going on and only then move on to the next.
My advice, learn slowly in small steps:
PONG is a relatively simple game to make, but once you know how to make it you will be able to make Arkanoid with a bit more effort. Learn some vector basics for enemy movement and you can make then Arakanoid into a shooter. Advance this way, in small steps and don't ask to much from yourself. Eventually it will come to you.

Otherwise I would agree with the above: You need to start smaller and put in the work to learn the basics. If you're having trouble learning from online resources, perhaps you could try to find a class in your area, or could investigate some video tutorials rather than just written posts.
