That's it's hard, will take a long time and lots of money? That you're not smart or diligent enough? That you shouldn't rest, sleep, or enjoy yourself because you should be studying?
How many vested interests are making study hard for you? Do teachers want you to outshine them? No. Do after school tutoring businesses want you to hire them? Yes. And other students? Do they want you to see your talent? No.
Are you willing to consider a different possibility? If so, ask “What if study were easy and fun?"
What if you approached study with the energy of an insatiable curiosity about things that inspire you? What if you were excited about learning new ways to expand your natural talents? Would study be more fun, easier, and more rewarding then?
