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.
