Take a cue from the very thing that allows you to read and understand this sentence: your brain.


A neuron only fires if it gets enough stimulation. 


A couple of weak pulses from connections to other neurons and nothing happens.


A few tepid practice sessions with some new activity . . . and nothing happens.




But if that neuron gets a strong enough input. . .


or weak signals from a whole bunch of connections . . .


BOOM, it fires off like a lightning bolt.




Put in a really strong effort. . .


or stay consistent with small efforts, and over enough time . . .


BOOM, a little breakthrough.




How we operate (Literally) on a microscopic level is also how we operate on a day-to-day level.



Feel like a moron, banging your head against something new? 


Just keep at it.  The right neurons will fire eventually, and then appropriately, you’ll start making headway, literally.
