Struggle

There are only two ways to counter a problem: Either you solve it or forget it’s existence,at least for the time being.

First one is a very palpable option! What about the latter? Solving is what everyone of us try to do.But sometimes we need to forget.We cannot do everything all the time,at least alone.Over-stressing doesn’t help you face problems but preparing for stress does.You sometimes need to wait for the right time and opportunity.

Isn’t our education system a great example for it? We don’t teach college level math to a middle schooler – not because they can’t solve it – but because they can’t solve it RIGHT NOW.

If we could solve all of our problems in one day,we wouldn’t have any problems on the next day.But that doesn’t happen,does it? If you can solve something,solve it.If you can’t solve something,prepare for it.

Simplicity

One’s experience shouldn’t be judged on the basis of how complexly they think,but how simply they answer.

Explaining math through numbers vs real life events has a big difference.

Achievement

Achievement is the reward of the drive to achieve something.One cannot possess a drive.They can only feel it.It only comes to those who lack something that they always wanted.

If everyone of us got everything that we wanted,then the world would be a place where we could not achieve anything.

Circle

Saving your money doesn’t make you rich.Investing it does.Because the saved-up money will be used-up one day,but invested money will keep growing (with slight fluctuations of course).You only come across savings when you have done some sort of investing in the first place,right?

In the same way:

Saving your time doesn’t make you rich in terms of quality of life.Investing that time to inculcate new skills and experiences does.Because the saved-up time will be used-up one day,but the invested time will keep-up your growth.You have the luxury of idle time only when you have already done some sort of investment prior to it to save time in the future,right?

Acquire

The first step to understanding something is not understanding it.

I would only try to understand something that I don’t know.For what I know I will just assume I know it and won’t critically pursue it any further.

Knowledge evolves through debates and conversations.It isn’t stable,it is ever changing.

To keep up with the change,we need to open our minds to various possibilities or we will be stuck in the middle of the road with nowhere to go.

Climb

There are two ways to make change possible – in both cases you need to become ‘big’ relative to the task.

Either you grow your knowledge and skill – become an expert at doing something.

Or you shrink the challenge – you divide your goal into smaller individual attainable actions.

Either way,you become more daunting than the task itself.Do not fear the task.Let the task dread you and follow your way instead.

Once you become capable or believe that you have become capable – your chances of succeeding increase significantly.
