Couldn't have said it any better.
My coaches growing up always had me overthinking this one. It wasn't until I was about 22 did I really start to develop my clapper. I would just go to stick and puck with a bucket of pucks and shoot until my arms were sore. I was just trying to feel comfortable taking that shot, I "perfected" my technique later. Also, using a stick that was too long inhibited my shot for a long time. Make sure your stick is an appropriate length for you.
