It’s time to swap your beliefs to positive ones. Prepare for the dose of motivation!
Any person has the ability to learn at least one extra language. You’ve done it before with your native language. Somehow all kids manage to do it. How? They don’t doubt their ability. They don’t give up. That’s the secret. Moreover, as you manage to learn one foreign language, it gets easier because you start to see what your strengths are and how to do it the way that works for you.
It’s not about having “super powers”, it’s about using what you’ve got. Figure out your strengths and weaknesses. For instance, I have a perfect short-term memory, but my long-term memory sucks. That means if I don’t constantly revise information, I might forget it. Luckily, with languages I don’t have to sit over books to do so, I just need to use a language from time to time. And I gladly do it by watching movies, listening to songs, etc. That’s how it works for me. Same thing with you – figure out you abilities and wing it!
Think about all those amazing things you can do once you know the language fluently. What are your little goals? Keep those things in mind. If there’s no point for you to learn a language, it’ll be tempting to quit whenever you run into an obstacle.
You don’t need to believe. When I started learning English I didn’t think I could possibly succeed. I had the same negative beliefs from the previous chapter. But I did it anyway. So, if you still don’t believe in yourself – don’t waste your energy on convincing yourself that you can. Just go for it.
Do not stop. Promise me that you won’t stop and I can promise you that you will succeed. Give yourself a year. And make sure that every day you do at least something language-related. Then see what happens. I assure you that fallowing tips from this book you’ll get results.
I believe in you and I wish you to succeed!
