ilm, seeking the path to knowlidge

salam alaikum warahmat hu wabarakat
Ilm, path to seeking knowledge is a never ending one. my journey has just begun.
its now two weeks ago that i started my journey. juggling the busy schedule to fit in 3.5 hours of extra class time with the extra time for home work is a challenge. so far the lessons have been relatively easy and the demands have not been excessive.
education at later age is far more challenging. the memory is not as sharp. what is imprinted in the mind at young age has now become struggle to remember. this is the least of the worries though, the main hurdle at the moment is building the confidence to speak up in front of the class with the right answer. as a child one has no fear of speaking their mind and being inquisitive in searching for answers. as an adult, we perceive ourselves as already knowing the answers so speaking up and saying the wrong thing is overwhelming. this stems from our ignorance and pride and can be overcome quite easily.
if we remember what the whole course of life is about ilm, path to seeking knowledge then this false notion of knowing all is irradiated and our confidence grows.
as adult learners we need the constant boost to keep focused. my first boost came from this video
