I had not heard of this term, learned helpessness, before but it has become a eureka moment for me. In the last two month’s I have realised that this is a real issue that can affect each and every one of us. This YouTube video really summarises things up (not just the dog training example 🙂 ). I do wonder though is this the product of nurture and not nature?
