Pressure When Learning Irish

Some people respond well when put under pressure but others don’t find the extra motivation to finish whatever they were doing and succumb under an imaginary weight on their shoulders. It all comes down to how motivated you are and how much are you influenced by auto-suggestion.

Not starting to learn something new because you’re afraid of mistakes will certainly lead to regrets. Continue reading
