Your brain is making connections all the time between what you already know and new things you want to know.
You are a learner.
No one is born knowing, but as a learner, you can make the journey toward knowing more.
You were made to learn. But learning rarely comes easy.
No one is born knowing
No one is born knowing how to talk, walk, and drive.
No one is born knowing how to study, read books, and write papers.
No one is born knowing how to give speeches, write stories, and produce podcasts.
Learning is hard work
Going from “not knowing” toward “knowing more” takes effort.
Study is not always easy. Learning can be tough.
It’s hard work to go from knowing nothing about a subject . . .
. . . to knowing a little about a subject . . .
. . . to knowing more about a subject.
No matter what you need to know, you have to spend time putting forth effort to study and learn.
Does learning frustrate you?
Then be encouraged!
You’re on the right track.
Learning is challenging. Learning is difficult. Learning is frustrating.
If you’re one of the few for whom learning is easy, then you’re not challenging yourself enough.
Learning takes time.
Sometimes learning takes tears.
But you can learn if you try—and remain patient with yourself as you grow.
