Are you committed with the goals that you have set?
I am asking you that because most people say they are, but in fact, they are not. And Commitment is something that most people wish they had, but they do not.
If you are really committed with your goal-sets and learning English is one of those goals - why are you taking so long to learn it?
If you don't have an answer, I can give one for you: lack of commitment! Yes, you say you have it, but you don't practice it.
Commitment in a learning process means that we believe wholeheartedly in the power of taking responsibility for our progress and we believe also in our ability to work to improve any issues with our discipline, our self-study and the excuses we create to not get better.
Commitment is therefore about a willingness and determination to communicate and put all effort into it.
We must change our mindset from the assumption that our lack of commitment is due to learning deficiencies and the difficulty of the English language per si. Any judgments that we have about our learning process has to be related to the work we have done towards it. As we learn to drop our own self-judgment and stop creating excuses, we will feel more committed to the process and it will, naturally, improve our language skills.
Perversely and paradoxically the solution to a lack of commitment is to commit!
As you do so, your doubt will disappear and you will reveal the truth of the learning process. With this commitment, your learning process becomes deeper and more intense, making up for the perceived loss of free time that you believed was the price for commitment.
Commitment is a recognition of our state of connectedness to our goal-set and is built on our intention to remove any issues that prevent a realization of this.
As we commit, we see more and more beauty in our speech and we strength the bond with the school, teacher or any other way we are using to acquire it.
