“Who” Before “How”

Have you noticed that when we’re learning, we’re totally focused on how to get to where we want to go?

We’re all about “the doing”.

We often skip the first essential step: the who.

Who we’re being as a learner.

It starts with asking questions like these:
– Who am I: victim or empowered?
– What am I attaching my self worth to?
– Do I understand how my brain works & how to use it deliberately?
– What are the fears, beliefs, emotions that are slowing down my progress?
– What other beliefs & emotions could drive me towards the results I want? How can I create them?

And then having specific tools so that when we start working on our language garden, we’re building on fertile foundations, not on a confused pile of weeds.

In short, it’s about feeling whole first rather than needing the language to fill a hole inside us. Anticipating the obstacles on our path & knowing how to remove or deal with them.

When we’re the gardener planting the flowers and not the impatient observer waiting for them to grow, we bloom & thrive, not just in our language learning or public speaking, but in all areas of our life.

Let me be the landscape architect of your mindset & help you become the gardener you were meant to be 🌼.
