You will be able to conquer this task. Immerse yourself into groups that speak English the way you want to. Gradually it will happen for you.
The late singer Robert Goulet came to the US from France as a young adult. He only spoke French. His fiance and later his wife helped him among others. By the time I first heard him speak I couldn't believe that he spoke such clear accent free English.
You probably have never heard of him. If you can get a recording of his music listen to him if for nothing else than enjoying his great voice. You will see what is possible.

Well, we "American People" are born with the ability to speak English fluently. If you practice, I bet you will get better!

Watch a lot of soap operas. TV is your friend when trying to learn and picking up on a new language, or dialect. But don't try too hard to change your accent. People find it intriguing and may want to talk to you more, ask you questions like where you're from. This would give you a great opportunity to practice.

You need to decide to NOT speak your native language (for some time not forever) unless it is absolutely necessary. Practice makes perfect, and the more you choose English with the appropriate dialect than your own language then the better off you will be. May not be easy, but if you stick with it, it will happen. Good luck!
