5 Questions to Accelerate Your English Confidence in 2020
Here are the 5 questions to finish your plan to accelerate your English confidence this year.
- What did you do in 2019 that helped you move toward your goal of English confidence and can help you continue in 2020?
- This is a fun one. It’s time to dream. For this question I absolutely want you to forget about all those negative memories and fears. Just focus on what’s possible.
- On your list, what is most important to you right now? Why?
- Now let’s zero in on ( = focus intently) on that specific goal you circled. Imagine that you accomplish that goal by the end of 2020 — how would that feel to you? What would your life be like? What would you do?
- What steps or actions can you take now, that will help you be that person now?
Why do these questions work?
Denis Waitely, an American motivational speaker, writer and consultant, says “To establish true self-confidence, we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.”
In Part 1, I asked you to think about the negative stories and bad memories you want to say goodbye to in 2019 AND identify how you made progress.
I want to help you create true confidence in your English.
But thinking about 2019 isn’t enough. There are two more steps needed to make true progress:
- Make a plan.
- Take action.
The truth is: dreams will always be dreams if you don’t take action.
In Part 2, you learn how to become the confident English speaker you want to be and how to start doing it today.
Final Thoughts on Accelerating Your English Confidence in 2020
Annie Dillard says, “How we spend our days is how we spend our lives.”
It’s seems so simple. Doesn’t it? We do have a choice about what to do today, tomorrow, and the next day.
- Option 1: hold on to those fears you had in 2019. You can continue doing things that don’t work. You can’t continue saying, “I can’t.”
- Option 2: decide that today you’re going to focus on what’s possible.
You can make choices about how to spend your time and prioritize activities that are meaningful to you, activities that help you accomplish the goals you have in life.
You don’t have to wait until the end of 2020 to feel and behave like the person you want to be. You can start today.
