Stats And Learned Helplessness – Revisited

Learned helplessness happens when we don't believe we have the ability to change our world & that external forces are against us. If that's true, we wouldn't bother to learn or practice anything. We can change our destination, but sometimes we have to turn the corner to meet the success that awaits those who persist.

The Robin’s Nest And Development
