The secret to learning and motivation… What motivates you? It’s hard to learn when you’re not interested. But if it was something you really cared about, education would be easy. There are chemical stimuli that the brain uses in the stimulus process, and if you knew their secrets and exploited them, you would maintain your enthusiasm and motivation, and also if you learned the secret of learning, and how your mind works and records new experiences, you will use that to learn in a better way and that in your mind A library of information that enables you to learn anything and this is what you will know in the coming lines.
The secret to learning and motivation
The full picture of motivation
Stimulation in the brain is the action of chemicals and neuromodulators are chemicals that affect how neurons respond to other neurons.
Today we will talk about three of them:
Acetylcholine neurons form neural changes in connections to the cerebral cortex that are important for focused learning when you give more attention.
Stimulation is controlled using a specific chemical called dopamine, which is found in a small group of neurons in the brain stem. These dopamine neurons are part of a large brain system that controls motivational learning. You should also know the following facts:
- Dopamine action in the brain
- Also, dopamine is released from those cells when they receive an unexpected reward
- Dopamine signals are ubiquitous and have a strong influence on the learning process, something that also influences decision-making.
Dopamine acts under the stimulus of future rewards and not just the immediate reward. This may motivate you to do something for which you may not be rewarded now but will lead to a much better reward in the future.
A lack of dopamine-producing neurons leads to a loss of motivation and to something else called anhedonia, which is a loss of interest in the things that once made you happy.
Dopamine neurons are part of the subconscious, part of the brain. When you promise to pamper yourself after you’ve finished studying, you’re under the influence of dopamine.
Once you know the secret of motivation, you can exploit it in patience to learn anything, but what happens in your mind from the fragmentation of information and then collecting it in a large library of information requires patience and knowledge of how the mind works when acquiring skills and learning.
The secret of learning is the library of units of information in your mind
When you learn anything new, all that happens in your mind is building a library of the idea, and the library that we know consists of shelves and books in every book is a lot of paper, and simply is what people do to enhance their knowledge and gain experiences, and what happens in their mind at the time of building experiences? Pieces of information pressed together to form many learning packets are stacked in the order that makes up the entire look of the library.
What is the benefit of learning how to be my mental library?
When you learn the secret of something and practice it, you master it and use it to your advantage. By learning about the mental library, you are able to tighten the learning, and your mental library is based on building a number of pieces and bundles gradually in your mind.
Components of the mental library:
Pieces and bundles
Pieces are valuable amounts of information that can be brought together in new ways, when learning something new builds one piece next to the other and completes the whole picture. A package is a way to compress information in a compressed manner. Packages can also help you understand new concepts.
What are mental pieces and firmness and how do I use them to my advantage?
Just as you want to teach your child to pronounce a word that you learn letter by letter and eventually after repetition is able to pronounce the whole word better than before, also chess professionals for example can easily access thousands of different styles of chess. The larger and more practice you have in your mental shard library no matter what material you learn, the easier it will be for you to solve problems and come up with solutions because when you understand one piece you will find that that piece can be linked to other similar pieces, the more experience you gain in forming bundles for any material Certainly you will notice that the pieces you are trying to create are very large pieces, I mean the links are longer. Like memorizing the playing of a long song by repetition and breaking it into pieces, the long piece becomes more durable and firmly grounded.
When you try to understand something, if you have a good library of these pieces, you can simply get to the right solution. A new field as you build each piece takes up part of the bigger picture of your knowledge, but if you don’t practice to grow the incremental pieces it can still be lackluster, and It’s hard to get the big picture together of something you’re trying to learn.
Using broad, creative thinking (the divergent pattern) your brain can help you connect two or more pieces to one another to come up with new ways to solve new problems.
There are two ways to discover something or solve problems
Through sequential thinking
Step by step each little step leads to a solution.
Through a holistic intuition
More holistic intuition often requires an innovative divergent mode, associating many different ideas with a mode of focus, and this occurs with relaxation and reflection.
In the end, learn how to think about solving sequential and holistic problems and own the secret of learning, which is the library in your brain and its components, and that the beginning is to divide what you want to learn and repeat over and over again, and to continue learning, take advantage of chemical stimuli (acetylcholine and dopamine) to pay attention to what you learn and add fun to it Immediate rewards and imagine the happy results, in the long run, to increase their secretion and maintain your enthusiasm, your enthusiasm is the secret of continued learning.
