Key Ideas

Picking up what you want to achieve

The first component to achieving something is picking it.

It has to be something tangible, but that is currently not tangible to you: it has to be something you currently don’t have. And you have to believe that you will achieve it.

Common backup learning styles

  • Imagining: coming up with ideas.
  • Reflecting: learning about the ideas you come up with.
  • Analyzing: synthesizing the ideas you’re learning and making strategic plans about how to use them.
  • Deciding: choosing a specific way to go with a specific idea.
  • Acting: taking action toward the attainment of your idea
  • Experiencing: learning from multiple angles.

Learning and mindsets

  • Most of us have a growth mindset about the learning style that come easy to us. For example, if you like math, you probably believe you can get better at math and you approach challenges and failures in your learning process as opportunities to grow.
  • Also, most of us have a fixed mindset about the learning styles we struggle with. For example, if you don’t like writing, you probably believe you can’t get better at it.

Negative learning habits

They are conditioned by our environment, because it is our tendency to put ourselves into situations in which we feel safe.

When we’re comfortable with one learning style, we do everything we can to create situations and environments that allow us to exercise that learning style. Conversely, we avoid situations and environments that would have us use different learning styles.

Achieving any goal

  • You need a clear, specific goal.
  • You need to actually want that goal.
  • You need to believe you can actually achieve your goal.
  • You need to visualize your goal.
  • You need to be 100% committed to your goal.
  • You need confidence and trust. When you have confidence, you take on challenges you’ve never done before.

Managing your mindset

There are two types of mindset: fixed and growth.

The first one can be met at individuals who believe that both success and failure are based mainly on innate abilities, which cannot be changed throughout one's lifetime, while the second mindset describes a person who is aware of the changes and improvements that the personal actions can bring.

What shapes our mindsets

Our mindset is said to be shaped by previous experiences as well as by a reward-based learning system.

We cannot let our mind, which has a limited bandwidth of focus and willpower in a day, get tangled in the unimportant and trivial.
