When our initial study motivation and determination runs out, we’re often left with the feeling that learning sucks. There are some concepts we can’t grasp, or that take ages to sink in. Or we’re set study tasks that make our brains hurt.

When we get stuck, when we experience that ‘learning sucks’ feeling – it’s easy to start doubting ourselves and our studying abilities. We can start to feel like there’s something wrong with us, or that everyone else is ‘getting it’ quicker.

But there’s another answer.

In this episode, I’m going to walk you through the 4 stages of learning ANYTHING new. You’ll be able to identify which stage you’re at with your study skills, the challenges you’ll likely face, and the steps you should take to boost your confidence and make progress.

You’ll discover why learning sucks…and why if it doesn’t you’re actually not doing it right. By the end of the episode, you’ll welcome being confused, getting stuck and making mistakes…I promise!
