One thought on “Embrace Struggle | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_008

  1. Thanks JS, very interesting reflections and nice perspective. To add to your thoughts on struggle and success, I see many students who are very used to success in high school struggle when attending elite universities competing against others who are equally or more intelligent, hardworking and disciplined. And when suddenly finding themselves in the middle of the pack, deciding to seek less demanding fields of study instead of embracing the struggle in a field they actually love.

    They are so accustomed to academic success, they have never learned to embrace struggle in that arena. And since their measure of worth is grades and scores, mistakenly conclude they are not cut out for that field of study. Particularly in engineering and sciences, where 50% washout (changing majors) is not uncommon. In many cases terrific talent ends up misdirected as a result.

    And now to my question– Are you not planning to write more on precious metals and mining companies? Or will your thoughts on those topics now be reserved exclusively via your paid subscription channels? I think your last meaningful written public discussion that topic was October 11, 2017 or almost 6 months ago:
