“Slow learner” definitely doesn’t sound sexy, especially since it makes you under-confident, right?!
To get the “slow learner” label off your chest, ask yourself “who put this label on me?” You know no one else can, BUT YOU, isn’t it?
What makes you stick this label on yourself?
Let me ask you, “Who is smarter, Albert Einstein or David Beckham?”
IT DEPENDS! How can Einstein beat David on the soccer court? And David makes a hell of a lot more money than Einstein!
Ok, you got it, right? Everyone has his or her own strengths. All you need to do is to find yours.
