Just Like Bunko: Persistence Trumps Talent

Series

Have you met people in your life that have ample talent but struggle with motivation? Back in middle school, I was never a bright student. Like Bunko, I put too much emphasis on thinking inwards and constantly exerting energy towards tasks that were not producing positive results.
