That is the key TBH, learn your DAW as much as you can as well as the "in the box" plugins that comes with it. For everything compression, EQs & other common effects, it's a good thing to dive into those learning topics at your own pace & learning rhythm. There's no secret, music production learning takes time & it's a kind of never ending learning curve once you get into it, with it's part of frustration & overwhelming moments of course, but if you enjoy it & are able to give it some time, it will be rewarding in the end.
You'll find many courses on Sonic Academy focusing on Ableton's Live as well as compression, EQ & much more. Many other resources are also available on the web & even books of course, now getting a subscription to access all S.A content is a good advice I can give ( I'm just a moderator here, so simple talk, not trying to sell anything ).
Browse the tutorials, see what can suits your needs for learning, write down the topics you think you should dive into and find resources and get into it step by step and : practice, try out things & techniques, don't focus too much on the end result quality at first and you'll see that the all puzzle & picture is gonna make sense after some time. Little goals, small steps to start leads to progress over time.
