As the advent of online learning platforms are gaining momentum, I want to help spread the word. The brain is malleable, we can grow new brain cells and our intelligence is not fixed. Hence, we can learn anything.
For as long as I can remember I had a fixed mindset on intelligence. I didn’t get things at once, so I must be stupid. There is no point in trying because smart, successful people get things instantly. So why bother? Growing up in such a traditional ignorant environment, thinking successful people never struggle, made me lose curiosity and a passion for learning and science. I became lazy.
I couldn’t be more wrong. Smart and successful people struggle the most. Fast forward. Ever since a myriad of books and other sources explained how our mind is like a muscle, I slowly began to think again. This blog is a diary on my lifelong educational endeavours.
