The Power of Learning and its Challenges
Remember that the most successful students take charge of their own learning and follow a simple but disciplined strategy. You may not have been taught how to do this, but you can do it and will likely surprise yourself with the results.
Embrace the fact that significant learning is often difficult. You will experience setbacks, but these are signs of effort, not failure. Setbacks come with striving, and striving builds expertise. Learning changes your brain, making new connections. Building mental models increases your capability.
The implication of this is powerful. To a large degree, your intellectual abilities lie within your own control. Your knowledge of this makes the difficulties worth tackling!
