If you get good grades, you probably heard these words many times: “you are so smart, you don’t even have to try, everything comes to you so easily!” But the truth it – you aren’t just “that smart,” you certainly do have to “try,” and things do not “come easily” at all. Success carries just as much, if not more, hard work, stress and anxiety as struggling does! I can vouch for that myself.
Here at the Wisdom of Learning Blog, we strive to help students improve their academic performance, confidence and joy of learning. We are starting a new series focused on specific “essential” learning skills.
