My Take Away’s From Today’s Episode:
- You don’t have to be in a school setting to learn something new, there are no limits
- You don’t have to the entire picture in your mind before you start, you could have a basic roadmap and follow your passion, it leads to amazing places
- Its okay to have doubts, but don’t let it stop you. You just have to keep working hard.
- One of the ways to fight impostor syndrome is to remind yourself of what you have done and what you can do.
- Whatever you do, make sure your reasons are right and trust me it will work for the best.
Demystifying the Myths
The myth another that says coding is hard is lying to you. If you believe you can learn you can learn, you will encounter challenges, but you have to be patient with your own process, everyone moves at their own pace. There is no sure way of learning something.
