so although you only wrote one line, i'm assuming that you may be "suffering" from an incorrect paradigm. A paradigm is the way you see something, it's a point of view, frame of reference or belief. The dreat egyptian astronomer, Ptolemy, was just as convinced that the earth was the center of the universe (rather than the sun) as you are that learning is boring. At the time, it semed that all of science and technology backed up his paradigm but as time went on we understood that he was actually wrong the whole time. When you allow your incorrect paradigm to control your attitude, you will never acheive wat you want to. If you believe that learning is boring and will never get better, it wont. If you think that you cant do it, you'll never learn. So here are your options:
1) Retain your paradigm and never enjoy learning- Begin to resent your rebbeim and your peers that do learn. Leave the yeshiva. Live your life with a feeling of guilt for not reaching your potential OR
2) Shift your paradigm- it's always easier said then done but here are some tips. Dont look at the sefer youre learning as a book, look at it as a map. Try to find your derech. Remember that EVERY boy has the ability to become a talmud chacham- no matter what. And start living the life you really want to live.
Change your paradigm, change your life!!!!!!!
Hatzlacha.
