Why did I let MATH stop me? (especially Algebra)

I just started reading Dr Caroline Leaf’s book, “Switching on Your Brain” and just a few pages into it, I start laughing as I thought…why have I let math keep me from moving forward with school? I love learning! So why?? I didn’t continue on with school largely in part because there would be math and most definitely algebra and the thought of trying to comprehend and ultimately failing math absolutely terrified me. There I said it! One of my little secrets that only my family knows.

Truth is, I never even tried. The person I was in high school is not the same person I am now.  It’s amazing to me how we let the little things haunt us, keeping us from the more that God has for us?

What little thing, that you have created to be a big thing, is standing in your way of going all out for your dream? I think it’s time for you to go for it. If so few people actual realize their true potential simply because, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7) Then it does seem pretty simple that you just have to change the way you think. “Renew your mind” moment by moment. Replace the negative thought with the converse positive thought and you should begin to produce different results. YOU ARE CREATED FOR GREATNESS! ACCEPT NOTHING LESS!! So, if you’re like me, say it with me…. I can do Math, (or insert your word) Algebra is easy to comprehend. Math is not going to hold me back!

If you think about it – it doesn’t take a communications pathologist and audiologist with pioneering work on neuroplasticity to tell you that you can do anything if you put your mind to it! LOL!!!

God really has given you all that you need to be successful and enjoy this life. Have a positive and uplifting day!

The right! The right! Pursue only what’s right! It’s the only way you can really live and possess the land that God, your God, is giving you. Deuteronomy 16:20

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies. Philippians 4:8-9
