Ways to ACTUALLY improve?

I watch so many videos and read so much advice and stuff on chess, but when I play it's like I'm staring into a void. It doesn't help that somebody sorta got me discouraged and frustrated today when they said I was a "low IQ player" since my rating is 1300. Are there any videos/books that ACTUALLY help you improve? Nothing is seeming to work, I'm not improving at all.
