Track Your Achievements to Ensure Your Success

Written by Josh Hinds

I don't feel like I am making fast enough progress - I think this is a far more common feeling than most realize. It tends to stem from our being so 'forward thinking' with regards to our own goals. Please don't get me wrong. There's nothing wrong at all with having long- term goals, as long as we takerepparttar time to acknowledge our achievements alongrepparttar 101979 way...

I used to be absolutely notorious for "not feeling like I was making ample progress on my own goals". I would always find myself asking, "Why I am not where I want to be yet?" Then a friend of mine made me realize that I was in fact making a plenty of progress. It was just that I was biased by my future goals torepparttar 101980 point that I wasn't takingrepparttar 101981 time to give myself proper credit for what I'd already achieved.

How to Use the Power of Knowledge to Enrich Your Life

Written by Lisa van den Berg

I was one of those kids that scraped through school by repparttar skin of my teeth. I hadrepparttar 101978 potential to get top marks, but just hated to study.

Every time I sat down to study I’d get hungry or sleepy or bored. And of course you can’t just stay hungry, or stay awake when you need rest or keep focused when you’re bored! Hey, any excuse would do.

I amrepparttar 101979 kind of person that needs things explained in terms of apples and pears. Let’s get down torepparttar 101980 grass roots of it all. Now apples + pears = fruit salad. Therefore an atom of oxygen mixed in a bowl with 2 atoms of hydrogen makes water – COOL! That didn’t seem to berepparttar 101981 wayrepparttar 101982 teacher wanted to explain it though.

This really used to frustrate me because I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge, if someone would just takerepparttar 101983 time to explain it to me inrepparttar 101984 way that I understand!

So, after gettingrepparttar 101985 shock of my life when I nearly failed to graduate from High School, I decided to set about finding out how I could study and actually understand and absorbrepparttar 101986 information I was so interested in learning.

I looked long and hard at different methods of learning and studiedrepparttar 101987 different ways in which people, who got good grades, managed it. Let me tell you that it has been one ofrepparttar 101988 most enlightening journeys I have undertaken.

We all learn in one of 3 ways. By learn I mean a)take in repparttar 101989 information b)understandrepparttar 101990 concepts c)retain it in a way that we can use and d)regurgitate it inrepparttar 101991 form that we have stored it. These 3 ways in which we all learn are by sight, sound and touch. In other words, through visual stimulus, audio stimulus and tactile stimulus. When you figure outrepparttar 101992 way that your brain likes to take in information, learning becomes a blast.

So, some people learn by visual stimulus. That means you are a visual thinker. You can see vivid pictures in your minds eye, in order to understand something it must be explained in a way that can help you to ‘see’ what happens. This can be accomplished by watching a video, play, slide show or reading. It can also be done by drawingrepparttar 101993 scene, seeing a physical model or seeing a picture.
