Teach Yourself to Learn

Creative minds are always learning. Brain coach Jim Kwik, who has worked with millionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, shared three of his top learning tips on the Make It website.

Get rid of your ANTs: Automatic Negative Thoughts telling you that you can’t learn something new - you’re too old, you’re not smart enough, it’ll be too hard, and so forth. Teach yourself to talk back to your ANTs. If you catch yourself thinking, “I can’t learn that,” tell yourself, “Yes, I can learn that.” Expand your mind to fit what’s possible, Kwik says.

Feed your brain: The food you eat can help your brain stay fit and flexible. Avocados, for example, provide monounsaturated fat, which can maintain a healthy blood flow. Blueberries can help protect your brain from oxidative stress, caused by an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in your body, and reduce the effects of brain aging.

Read: Reading promotes learning. Expose yourself to different ideas by reading a wide variety of books and articles. Set a goal: just 10 minutes a day for a start, then go from there.
