Is there anything you want to learn, but thinks it is very hard or possibly, that you can’t learn or master it, be it a subject, a course, a skill or a way of life?
In this write-up, I will explain in details the most important and almost neglected secret to learning and the simplest things you need to know in order to achieve your aim.
What does it mean to learn?
In a simplest form, it means to acquire knowledge or to acquire an ability to do something.
As an adult, the first step to Learning is to determine what you want to learn. Is it a skill, an intelligence, a way of life or what?
When you are sure of what to learn, don’t make the mistake of asking yourself how to learn it, go straight to the second step bellow!
The second step is to discover why you want to learn. Ask yourself: ‘Why do I need to learn this?’ That question, is the most crucial part of the secrets of learning. The clearer your reasons, the stronger it is. And the stronger it is: the more determined you’ll become. For instance; any person who wants to learn any computer programming language will definitely quit after a short while if he doesn’t have any strong reason why he wants to learn the skill. So, for such person to succeed, he needs a clear and strong reason why he chose to learn a computer programming language.
My fellow programmers can tell you more of the above facts. This illustration applies to any kind of learning, be it primary, secondary, college, or tertiary education. It also applies to any kind of skill or endeavour you may want to engage in your life.
But, how exactly do you succeed in learning?
In a normal sense, ‘you don’t need to ask why, if you don’t know how’. But in the real sense, if you really don’t want to quit, you need to know in the deepest part of your mind ‘why you need to do what you want to do. If possible, write down your reason before you proceed.
The fact that ‘Knowledge is power’, is never an enough reason to make you want to learn. Trace your reason down to a more personal level.
The clearer and stronger your reason, the more determined you shall be to continue learning until you succeed.
What is the best thing to do when you discover what to learn?
The simplest answer is: create a personal reason why you need to learn that subject, course or skill. Only then, can you have a strong determination to continue learning until you master.
