How to Learn Any Language On Your Own (Step-by-Step Guide)

Mar 17 2:31am Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
You're reading How to Learn Any Language On Your Own (Step-by-Step Guide), originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. Learning a language on your own is not easy. But it is possible with the right strategy. While we suggest finding a teacher or partner that can help shorten your learning curve, we also understand that not everyone has the budget or time. Over the past few years, we’ve heard from many of our student who have tried learning a language on their own. They’ve shared from their own experience what they wish they would’ve done differently. Know how you best learn This is the single biggest feedback we’ve gotten from people who’ve taken the solo learning path. It turns out that some people are designed to learn new things on their own, while some of us are the contrast. For example, some of us learn best by listening, while others retain more information when reading something (check out the 7 major learning styles). You have to reflect on your previous experience to understand how you’ve best learnt new skills in the past. Unfortunately, most of us have been forced to learn via a limited learning style because of the traditional education system we grew up with. In short, not everyone is designed to learn new skills on their own. And by being self-aware of your shortcomings upfront, you can save yourself a lot of time, stress, and hassle.   Know why you’re learning a language If you have decided to learn a language on your own, the biggest obstacle for most people is persistency. In most cases, learning anything on your own will take much longer than getting professional help and guidance from someone who’s done it before. This is why you need to have a strong inner purpose of why you’re learning a language. Maybe your family speaks another language, and you want to feel a deeper connection with them. Perhaps your spouse comes from a different culture, and you want to be able to communicate with his/her family. Understanding why you’re learning a language is what’s going to inspire you to go through that lesson manual, attend those language exchanges, and to continue grinding it out when things inevitably gets tough. If you’ve attended our free language masterclass, then you know we’ve discussed the cycles...

The 5 Best Podcasts on Love

Mar 16 12:32am Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
You're reading The 5 Best Podcasts on Love, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. There are many different types of love, self-love, romantic love, obsessive love, unconditional love, enduring love or selfless love, among others. As a society we tend to focus mostly on romantic love, and in doing so, we may disregard the other types which can prove more fulfilling. The love of friendship can be founded on the virtues of reliability and camaraderie, which in turn helps us have a higher understanding of the self, others and the world around us. Familial love is one of dependability that is not anchored by our personal qualities. Selfless love can be defined as a type of altruism, a love that transcends our inner circle and is about a broader scope of nature and good will. Insight into love can be illuminating as one continues on their journey to self awareness. Here are 5 podcasts that provide some food for thought on this topic: A podcast with New York Times bestselling author Matthew Hussey, a dating expert giving practical advice to help women gain confidence in their search for attracting a loving partner. He centers around the do’s and dont’s of online dating sites/apps (and of course, texting) and how to navigate through the sea of choice with intention, to find what works for you. http://jesslively.com/matthewhussey/ This podcast bring you a weekly in depth interview with a relationship expert, this one, with Toni Herbine-Blank, focuses on connection, sexuality and intimacy. Sex, shared emotional experience and what you create together are all examples of potential in a relationship, this podcast interview deals with how to tap into that possibility and the skills that you need to actually thrive in a relationship. How to use all the inner work on ourselves with our partner?
