I know that all of the human characteristics that I just mentioned above are in fact positive traits and an elite mentality. But the pressures are still there, baring down on us.
I used to get really stressed about my schoolwork and had a similar problem with reading texts and so on. I would be reading but my mind would be thinking of something else and I wouldn't absorb the material.

Now I'm more relaxed about it and I don't stress over it. If I fail something or do bad on an assignment, it doesn't really matter anymore. I'll just do better on the next one...

I'll do my homework and study for tests, but I don't try as hard as I used to. I'm a lot happier this way too. And I still get good marks, I just don't have to stress over it. And being more relaxed I'm able to devote my full attention when I study.
