Everything is hard? Well, no.
Everything is hard…at first.
I mean think about it.
Calculus is inconceivable. Philosophy sounds like voodoo. Economics is counter-intuitive. And a new language looks like hieroglyphics.
Remember that you have to be patient in all of this.
And understand: Time and patience can work like magic.
“It’s a thought process, right? It opens up new possibilities for almost everything. Anything a person might want to become—a great parent, a successful sales executive, a fast reader—everything is within reach. When you think about it, it’s a mind-set based on reality. Why would anyone think they would be great right out of the box? I want to be a great cook. I am not a great cook . . . yet. Therefore, I will live with the confusion and disappointment of ruined meals as I practice until I master the skills and timing I need to be a great cook.” Baker thought for a moment, wanting to understand clearly and form the idea into words he could remember. “It is amazing,” he said finally. “The whole concept of ‘confusion before learning’ means that confusion guards the answers we seek.”
