Circus shows use a thin rope tied to a stake to keep full-grown elephants from moving. It seems impossible that such powerful animals are controlled this way.

The answer: they were trained from a young age with strong restraints. Over time, they "learn" it's hopeless and stop trying.

What have you given up on because it seems hopeless?

We've been learning our whole lives, yet no one taught us how to learn.

Warren Buffet famously said his best investment was in his own abilities. If abilities - the application of knowledge— are power, then learning how to learn is a top investment of your time.

Understanding how you learn new things is crucial. Being adaptable and continually upgrading your skills is a master attribute.

I believe we all have enormous untapped potential.


Most people underestimate their ability to make significant progress and build new neural pathways QUICKLY with a short amount of focused effort.


I've seen the incredible power of consistent progress firsthand.


Imagine focusing for just 10 minutes a day to a skill you want to improve. By "focus," I mean intense, distraction-free concentration. Over a year, that adds up to 60 focused hours. Do you doubt your ability to dramatically improve skills with 60 focused hours?


Consistent progress compounds and builds intrinsic motivation.
