In this episode, I discuss motivation with regard to language learning and some crucial points that determine success or failure for most people.

Summary:

  • There are two types of motivation – extrinsic and intrinsic.
  • Both can be vitally important motivation sources.
  • Extrinsic is the more risky to rely on however because it’s brittle. Once your extrinsic motivator is gone, you run out of reasons to continue.
  • The most important word in language learning is why.
  • Take advice from Bear Grylls and his “just go to Fiji” story.
  • Spending quality time establishing your purpose is probably the best use of your time and will lay the groundwork for your eventual success.
