When you understand what it truly means to be smart, you know the true purpose of your mind.
There is nothing more important for you to learn than how to make full use of your mind.
Don’t get discouraged if you fail at first. I promise you that you will figure it out. And when you’ve figured it out, you’ll know.
How you feel about difficulty, mistakes, and setbacks is equally important. How do you typically respond when things don’t go the way you had hoped? Do you become deeply discouraged? Do you get down on yourself? Do you get worried and fearful?
By developing grit, you can persevere in a game in which you have little skill to start. You can build skill and, over time, even build talent.
