I have always found irony in the any of those books for dummies. People think they are dumb in a subject matter and think I need this book to learn something in this area. As humans, we are so quick to bully our selves by calling our selves “dumb or stupid “when we have trouble understanding concepts. We are afraid to ask questions or dare I say dare answer I question for fear of giving the answer wrong and getting embarrassed. In essence, we bully ourselves to believe we are dumb and should be ashamed by our lack of knowledge on a subject.
The hardest thing someone can do is to stand up to a bully. It’s scary to think of all the things that could happen as a result of defending yourself. But what if the bully you need to confront is you? Is challenging what you think of yourself so scary to eve try?
As a professional tutor, there is no such thing as a “dumb or stupid person in this world. We all have unique talents and understand information in our way. Which can make some material confusing to us, it doesn’t make us dumb. The best way we can stand up to the bullies inside is to stop thinking your dumb and believe in yourself. Ask or answer questions without fear of what your brain or others might, without worrying about asking a question means you’re stupid. By asking the question, you are not only learning yourself but helping many other people who may have had the same question but were to afraid to ask because of the bully inside them. Once you tame the bully inside, there is nothing you can’t do.
