So my buddy studies psychotherapy, and I went to one of their classes. One of the topics included learned helplessnes. They gave us a piece of paper with an anagram consisting of three words to complete. I was sitting in the back row, and got the impossible one. 

After trying to solve first two cases which were a NO go, it was actually really hard to think of a solution for the third one which was actually solvable.

This video explains it in detail

Knowing about this is for sure a good thing, it let's you observe what's going on rather than giving up when things seem tough.

Example would be an exam. If you solve easy tasks first you have higher chances of solving the harder ones too.

Interesting to think about

Good post.  It's nteresting to think about learned helplessness in the context of goal setting and learning new skills.  Where in my life have I induced learned helplessness-- by making the initial goal too complex ? 

This is a  nice reminder to be easy on yourself in the early stages of accomplishing a  big goal. Create situations, where  you can have little victories to gain momentum.
