Read a book about something you enjoy – sport, cooking, knitting etc. You'll be surprised how easy it becomes to keep going with the challenge.
Start by meditating for a few minutes before studying on why it’s really a privilege and a blessing to receive an education. When you break it down, it’s not really a chore after all, it’s a gift. It’s something you do for yourself, your family and your future. It feeds your mind – and helps your brain grow and develop new neural pathways. You learn how to communicate better, write better and earn more money at work. It opens doors that would otherwise be closed to you. Set a goal to graduate with honors! Your future self will thank you.
Always remember that knowledge is power. It's so exciting and empowering when someone comes to you for help or answers and you can do it without hesitation. Learning should be a priority. It's better to know than to not know. Yes know? Lol Learning is definitely not something that can hurt you but being uneducated CAN! Good Luck!!
I’m not sure how you re-train yourself for this, maybe by picking subjects that interest you and starting there? I’ve had a hunger for knowledge my entire life and I study voraciously even when it’s self assigned. Knowledge is power and I believe that when we stop learning we start dying inside, or at least stop growing.
