You can try solving problems in a contest and then afterwards try solving the remaining problems that you didn't solve (upsolving). The level of problem difficulty should be so that you are able to eventually solve it, but it's still a challenge for you where you learn new stuff.

When you're stuck on a problem, try reading hints or solving some simpler problem on a related topic.

cp-algorithms.com is a great resource for learning CP, especially their implementations are elegant.
